ABSTRACT

Study Design: A case report. Objectives: To report laminoplasty and recapping procedure of C7 for intradural tumor excisionSummary of Literature Review: Various surgical techniques have been attempted to decrease postoperative axial neck pain. Material and Methods: Kurokawa laminoplasty of C7 was performed. Autogenous bone graft material was harvested from partial T1laminectomy. Intradural tumor was removed without any complications. Four mini plates were applied at hinge sites of laminoplasty andone lag screw was fixed at the longitudinally splitted lamina of C7. Results: Early range of motion without braces was possible following laminoplasty and recapping procedure. Solid union was achievedat the hinge sites of laminoplasty at the 3-month postoperative follow-up. No instability was observed at the 2-year postoperative followup. The visual analog scale of axial neck pain at the 2-year postoperative follow-up was 2. Conclusions: Laminoplasty and recapping procedure might be a good option for intradural tumor excision to facilitate early range ofmotion and decrease postoperative axial neck pain.
