Prolapse/Protrusion

When, for example, the fibrous ring (annulus fibrosus) surrounding the intervertebral disk moves axially or laterally, this is called a disk protrusion. In cases where the gelatinous, spongy center presses down on the fibrous ring so hard that it tears, we are talking about a herniated disk (prolapse).
