Surgical procedure designed to treat spinal stenosis by creating more space within the spinal canal.
Involves the strategic repositioning of the lamina, the bony arch covering the spinal canal.
Indications for Laminoplasty:
Spinal stenosis, a condition where the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord.
Preserving spinal stability while addressing stenosis.
An alternative to laminectomy, aiming to maintain the integrity of the spine.
Procedure and Techniques:
Incision and Exposure:
A small incision is made over the affected vertebrae, exposing the lamina.
The lamina is partially cut and then lifted or hinged open, creating more space in the spinal canal.
Bone Graft Placement:
Small wedges of bone or bone graft material may be inserted to keep the lamina in an elevated position.
The repositioned lamina is secured, maintaining stability and preventing further compression of the spinal cord.
Recovery and Rehabilitation:
Postoperative immobilization may not be required.
Physical therapy to promote spine flexibility and strength.
Gradual return to normal activities guided by healthcare professionals.
