8%. 7%. 12 OPLL more often occurs in the cervical spine of men older than age 40 and frequency increases in the 50s. It can occur in the upper and middle thoracic spine and may be associated with ossification of the ligamentum flavum. OPLL can penetrate the dura, which eliminates the epidural space. 1 Variations in the pattern of OPLL have been classified as continuous, segmental, mixed, and other types. Static compression of the spinal cord is thought to be the main cause of myelopathy in OPLL, yet dynamic factors can play a role in further deterioration.

Lumbar Diskectomy A variety of diskectomy techniques are currently used by orthopedic and neurologic surgeons. The procedure chosen is typically based on the surgeon’s preference and experience. The conventional open diskectomy involves use of a standard surgical incision to obtain adequate visualization and illumination, then frequently performance of a hemilaminotomy to relieve pressure on the nerve roots and visualize the protruded disk, followed by a diskectomy to remove the herniated nuclear disk material.

Although their clinical presentations may be similar, the management and prognosis of each of these conditions differs from that of a herniated disk and is not within the scope of this chapter. To properly evaluate a patient presenting with a lumbosacral radiculopathy, it is important to understand the anatomy of the lumbar spine, with particular attention to the relationships of the lumbar intervertebral spaces and foramina, nerve roots, and pedicles. Each lumbosacral nerve root exits the spinal canal via the neural foramen at the disk space below its respective vertebral body and is typically compressed by a herniation of the disk immediately above this vertebral body.
