Fig. 31.4. Cervical spondylotic myelopathy. There are three potential mechanisms of compressive myelopathy and spondylosis: AP diameter stenosis a, anterior spinal cord encroachment b and dynamic compression (c and d). a Lateral cervical spine MRI study demonstrating narrowing of the spinal canal from C3 to C5, due to congenital narrowing of the canal compounded by bulging disk and osteophytes at the interspaces. b Post-myelogram CT scan axial view, demonstrating an anterior osteophyte indenting and deforming the anterior aspect of the spinal cord. (cand d) An AP X-ray demonstrates a complete block at the C6-C7 level c. With the head flexed, the dye passes across the level of the obstruction to the upper cervical spine, and there is no focus of compression seen in this image d.
