Clinical features of ligamentosis in lumbar spinal stenosis in patients of different agе
Keywords:lumbar spinal stenosis, ligamentosis, neurogenic spinal claudication, yellow ligament, posterior longitudinal ligament
Introduction. Ligamentosis of lumbar spinal canal are rare and not well investigated pathology.
Materials and methods. From our patients with lumbar spinal stenosis we took that, which had changes in spinal ligaments
Results. We studied incidence of intracanal ligamentosis, caused by them features in clinic of lumbar spinal stenosis in 45 patients.
Conclusions. Pathology of ligaments leads to changes of spinal biomechanic, narrowing of spinal canal and has influence to clinical features of lumbar spinal stenosis. Pathology is more common for patients in senior age.
