STUDY DESIGN An experimental immunohistochemical investigation using an antibody for proliferating cell nuclear antigen. Surgically-extirpated specimens of posterior longitudinal ligament tissues from patients with hypertrophy of the posterior longitudinal ligament and other disorders of the cervical spine were analyzed. OBJECTIVE To analyze the developmental mechanism of hypertrophy of the posterior longitudinal ligament, the authors evaluated the growth activity of cells in the posterior… CONTINUE READING
