procedures). There were 30 men and 40 women with a mean age of 61 ± 13 years (range 28–84 years). In patients with cervical disorders, there were 17 cases of OPLL, 11 cases of cervical spondylosis, and one case of tumor (metastatic cancer). There were 35 cases involving lumbar degenerative disease such as lumbar stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and foraminal stenosis. Finally, in patients with thoracic lesions, ossification of the ligamentum flavum and OPLL were the major problems. The ultrasonic bone curette was used to remove a lower thoracic ossified ligamentum flavum via a

anterior clinoidectomy, 1 , 3 , 6 , 10 , 16 which is also our preferred technique. Drilling of the optic canal, however, has its own risks. It may injure the already compromised optic nerve either directly by mechanical compression or indirectly by the heat produced by the drilling. Therefore, this procedure must be undertaken with extreme care, and it requires a certain degree of expertise. An ultrasonic bone curette ( Fig. 1 ) is a device with an oscillating metal tip developed for resection of osseous tissues. Use of this device for anterior clinoidectomy and

damage to surrounding soft tissues and important structures such as nerves, blood vessels, and mucosa. 11 , 37 In neurosurgery, ultrasonic aspirators have been used to remove soft-tissue tumors such as meningiomas and vestibular schwannomas. 32 More recently within the past few years, ultrasonic bone curettes have been adapted to perform not only endoscopic bone removal over the skull base, but also laminectomies of the spinal column. 6–8 , 24 , 28 , 32 , 33 , 38 , 41 , 46 In a sequence of case series and technical notes, the Sonopet UST-2001 (Miwatec Co., Ltd.) has
