Abstract

Multilevel Cervical Myelopathy Treatment - Open-Door Laminoplasty vs. Multiple Cervical Arcocristectomies

Cervical myelopathy due to posterior multiple level compression remains a surgical challenger. Many surgical options have been used in the last years, but the best choice is unclear. We compared open-door laminoplasty and multiple level arcocristectomies on clinical and radiological findings.
