Figure 7: Sagittal section of contrast-enhanced (a), T2-weighted (b), axial section of contrast-enhanced (c) magnetic resonance imaging scan showing the cystic juxtamedullary neoplasm on the left side of the cervical cord at C7 level. Schematic representation (d) of the extent of the required bony removal and the appropriate placement of hemi-laminectomy retractors is shown. Axial computed tomography scan (e) showing the extent of hemi-laminectomy. Under-cutting of the base of the spinous process to obtain a maximal surgical exposure is recommended
