OBJECT The authors' goal in this study was to understand the frequency and pattern of dural ossification (DO, and to evaluate the effectiveness of neuroimaging modalities used to identify this disease in association with ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL). METHODS One hundred eleven patients with OPLL underwent anterior procedures. Of these patients, 17 (15.3%) had associated ossification of the dura mater. There were 10 cases of DO in the 94 patients with segmental… CONTINUE READING
