Abstract

OPEN-DOOR EXPANSILE laminoplasty is a practical surgical technique for the treatment of cervical myelopathy secondary to cervical spinal stenosis. Laminoplasty procedures were first described in the late 1970s and have undergone numerous modifications. The current article reviews the indications, techniques, and outcome data for cervical laminoplasty. Complications of laminoplasty and comparison to laminectomy outcomes are also discussed.
