Contralateral Intraspinal Facet Cyst Formation after Unilateral Laminectomy Bilateral Decompression in the Lumbar Spine

ABSTRACT
Primary intraspinal facet cysts have been studied extensively, but have only been a few reports on the development of postoperative intraspinal facet cysts after lumbar decompression surgery. We report a case of a contralateral intraspinal facet cyst developing after bilateral decompression via a unilateral approach in a patient with severe spinal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis. Postoperative intraspinal facet cysts should be recognized as one of the postoperative complications of decompressive surgery for spinal stenosis, especially if there is evidence of facet arthropathy and degenerative spondylolisthesis.
