STUDY DESIGN Retrospective Cohort Study OBJECTIVE.: To compare the feasibility of posterior cervical laminoforaminotomy (PCF) for V- or parallel-shaped foraminal stenosis (FS). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA During PCF, the need for extensive facet resection would depend on the extent of any pathology. When resection is extensive, the possibilities of instability and incomplete decompression should be considered. METHODS From March 2004 to March 2015, we enrolled 36 patients following single… CONTINUE READING
