PEARLS AND PITFALLS Physical examination • The Hoffman reflex can indicate spinal cord compression but can be positive in normal individuals. Patient position • Slight cervical flexion facilitates exposure and closure by eliminating redundant posterior skin folds and decreases overlap of lamina (laminar shingling) for improved identification of adjacent levels. Opening side • If foraminotomies are planned, then the opening side should be made over the ipsilateral side of compression. If asymmetric compression is present, it may be beneficial to open the more affected side.

The superior end of the graft is inserted first and then the inferior end is gently tamped into position.
