The MRI scan illustrated scoliosis and arthritic changes that included facet arthropathy L2-S1, disc space narrowing at multiple levels in conjunction with mild osteophytic spurring, disc space narrowing at L5-S1, and mild degenerative endplate changes.
They represent pathological changes of muscle and ligament attachments, which may be osteophytic or osteolytic.
Extensive resection of the cartilage leads to poor compliance of the chest, and permanent cartilage loss is associated with restrictive lung disease, chest fixation at the resected sites, calcification, osteophytic growth and in some, acquired asphyxiation chondroplasty.
The Kellgren-Lawrence (KL) grading system was used for classifying radiographic signs: grade 1, questionable narrowing of joint space and possible osteophytic lipping; grade 2, definite osteophytes and possible narrowing of joint space; grade3, moderate multiple osteophytes, definite narrowing of joint space, some sclerosis, and possible deformity of bone contour; and grade 4, large osteophytes, marked narrowing of joint space, severe sclerosis, and definite deformity of bone contour [11].
An MRI scan was undertaken which showed right-sided cervical foraminal stenosis (with uncovertebral and facet joint osteophytic changes at C3/4 and C4/5) (Figure 3).

There are various degenerative conditions which may lead to thoracic stenosis such as thickening or OLF, facet joint hypertrophy, ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament, ventral disc protrusion or osteophytic changes.
