Transdiscal Osteophytectomy and Fusion According to Robinson’s Method
Spinal stenosis acquired by medial and/or lateral osteophytosis provokes a cervicobrachialgia or symptoms of spinal cord compression. The neckpain is generally localized in the lower part of the neck, on the medial or paramedial line. A thoracic or interscapulary irradiation is frequent. During exacerbations, there exists a limited mobility and palpation encouters acute painful points on the transverse processes, in particular on those of C 6. The origin of this cervicalgia can be discal, uncovertebral or on articular processes. The uncarthrosic origin is certainly the most frequent. The radiculalgia spreads itself in the whole metameric territory.
