    INTRODUCTION: Laminoplasty has been proposed as a treatment for cervical stenotic myelopathy (CSM) as an alternative to standard laminectomy as this has been considered directly associated with an increased risk of postoperative deformity. METHODS: We retrospective reviewed postoperative results...

    There has been little enthusiasm for somatosensory evoked potential monitoring in cervical spine surgery as a result, in part, of the increased risk of motor tract injury at this level, to which somatosensory monitoring may be insensitive.
