Crossover technique for recessotomy and ligamentectomy with special microanatomical aspects of the far lateral ligamentum flavum – a microsurgical-neuroanatomical study

Peter A. Winkler & S. Ottavio Tomasi
Objective: Recessal stenosis is traditionally considered a result of bony narrowing due to osteophytic appositions on the superior articular process. Clinical experience reveals that significant additional compression of the neural structures is due to degenerative hypertrophy of the adjacent ligamentum[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
