Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We describe a case of spondylotic lumbar spinal stenosis in an infirm elderly patient successfully treated with multilevel laminotomies. This procedure is less stressful to patients than a full laminectomy. In a selected subgroup of patients with 'hourglass' spondylotic stenosis, it may provide adequate decompression.
