Abstract

The article reviews 180 cases of osteoplastic laminotomies, 1 year after operation. The patients were predominantly children undergoing selective dorsal rhizotomies. Also included were a few pediatric patients who received laminotomies for spinal cord tumors. Spinal X-rays were reviewed at 1 and 3 years of follow-up. There was complete to partial bridging of the laminar roof in all cases. This experience confirms that the procedure is well tolerated and is associated with reossification of the replaced bony segment.
