This summary of NASS’s clinical guideline for degenerative stenosis addresses 18 clinical questions based on a rigorous review of the published evidence.  Regrettably the evidence available was often deemed insufficient or weak.  Nonetheless, this document should be the definitive starting point for reading about the treatment of stenosis.
