(56) recently compared 5-year clinical and radiologic outcomes following 78 patients who underwent either cervical endoscopically-assisted tubular laminotomy or conventional expansive laminoplasty and found similar JOA recovery rates and complication rates with significantly less blood loss, post-inflammatory markers, and postoperative neck pain in the microendoscopic group.
Newer minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as unilateral laminotomy, bilateral laminotomy and LSPSL, limit the amount of bone excised from the vertebra, minimises damage to back muscles and ligaments during surgical exposure, maintain spinal stability and decrease the risk of post-operative complications.2,5,21,22 We prefer to perform LSPLS by the transspinous approach at our centre (Figure-3).
Laminectomy was used in 313 patients, while laminotomy was recently introduced in our department and used in 16 patients; five of them were reported in a previous series [29].
We strongly prefer laminotomy over laminectomy to approach an intradural-extramedullary lesion because of the risk of iatrogenic postoperative instability and spinal deformity.
A bilateral laminotomy was reserved for clinically significant bilateral neural element compression.
With limited laminotomy, vertebral canal was opened and explored with caution.

It is accepted that surgical evacuation of a hematoma, either by laminectomy or laminotomy, must be performed immediately after radiological confirmation of SSEH to prevent further progression of neurological deficits.
