1/1. Cervical laminar exostosis in multiple hereditary osteochondromatosis: anterior stabilization and fusion technique for preventing instability.Multiple hereditary osteochondromatosis is a genetically transmitted disorder consisting of multiple projections of bone capped by cartilage, which are called exostoses. spinal cord compression due to expansion of a laminar osteochondroma is rare but well recognized. Surgical decompression usually improves the patient's neurological status but, in cervical exostosis, post-laminectomy kyphosis and instability problems, especially in the high-risk adolescent group, form the most significant potential difficulties in the postoperative period. We report a case of cervical laminar exostosis that was treated by anterior stabilization and fusion and discuss the benefits of this technique.
