Spinal canal stenosis is a condition where a narrowing of the spinal canal and often the neural foramen has occurred. The condition can cause compression of the nerve roots/spinal cord. Cervical laminoplasty is a procedure intended to relieve the pressure by opening the posterior elements or the cervical spine thus creating space for the spinal cord and cervical nerve roots.
