The aim of study is to further understand the phenotype of developmental spinal stenosis. Our hypothesis is that patients with developmental narrowing of the spinal canal only require a smaller degree of disc degeneration and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy to develop symptoms as compared to the degenerative type of spinal stenosis.
