Abstract

Biomechanical behavior of lumbar spine following laminotomy and laminectomy was studied. The aim of the study was to determine whether the presumed increase in instability of the spinal segment following a laminectomy was significant statistically. The results indicated an important role of midline ligaments in the laminotomy and laminectomy procedures in terms of segmental stability and increased loading of the intervertebral disc.
