Interlaminar stabilization and decompression for the treatment of bilateral juxtafacet cysts: Case report and literature review.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2019 Mar 30;57:155-159. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA.

Introduction: Lumbar juxtafacet cysts (JFCs) are a common cause of lumbar radiculopathy which tend to occur in areas of increased facet mobility. While resection alone is a possible treatment, recent publications suggest that laminectomy alone for JFCs may not yield as favorable an outcome as laminotomies reinforced with posterior dynamic hardware. The Coflex is a novel interlaminar stabilization device that has been shown to achieve comparable results to rigid fusion in the management of lumbar stenosis in patients with no more than grade one anterolisthesis, and superior performance compared to laminectomy alone when a combined outcome score was used.
