STUDY DESIGN Titanium miniplates are used to secure the posterior elements in the open position after expansive open-door laminoplasty. Preoperative and postoperative spinal canal dimensions are measured to assess the effectiveness of this technique. OBJECTIVES To develop a simple yet effective technique to stabilize the posterior elements after laminoplasty and to compare preoperative and postoperative spinal canal dimensions to accepted normal values.
