Expansive Laminoplasty for Cervical Compression Myelopathy.
Dong Ro Han, Eun Sig Doh, Oh Lyong Kim, Yong Chul Chi, Byung Yearn Choi, Soo Ho Cho
Abstract
In an attempt to eliminate some negative aspects of conventional extensive laminectomy, 4 cases of multiple level of cervical compression myelopathy, 1 OPLL (ossification of posterior longitudinal ligament) and 3 cervical stenosis, were treated with a technique of expansive laminoplasty. Operative results in all patients were satisfactory without surgical complications and all patients had a neurological improvement. We suggest that our technique is more effective one for cervical canal stenosis, OPLL, and spondylosis than conventional extensive laminectomy.
