Definition

under construction; usually presents with compression of cauda equinae lower lumbar and sacral radiculopathy with bowel and bladder symptoms with bilateral back pain and perineal dysesthesias; caused by disk, DJD, mass in lower lumbar spinal canal; congental hereditary shallow spinal canal is seen; most common in elderly with compression fractures old surgery, osteophytes, and severe osteoarthritis; surgery is best treatment if severe or progressive;CT or MRI imaging
