ABSTRACT One of major causes of cervical central stenosis (CCS) is thickened change of cervical ligament flavum (CLF). The association of a morphological parameter called cervical ligament flavum thickness (CLFT) with CCS has not been reported yet. Thus, the purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between CCS and CFJT.Data were obtained from 88 patients with CCS. A total of 87 normal controls also underwent cervical spine magnetic resonance imaging (CSMRI). All subjects unde...
