Although these techniques show promise, they generally require specialised equipment, more technical expertise and tend to be associated with a steep learning curve.2,7,8 Lumbar spinous process-splitting laminectomy (LSPSL), an alternative to conventional laminectomy first described in 2005, 5 is a posterior midline structure-preserving decompressive technique, with the advantage of a traditional midline approach that neurosurgeons are familiar with.8 It also avoids the need for specialised tubular retractors.
