Russia and Israel) connected intercostal nerves above the injury site to nerve roots
below the injury site in 11 patients with complete L1-injuries (Spinal Cord 42, 2004).
When the Band-Aid is removed and the pressure alleviated from the spinal cord or the nerve roots
, things begin to work again.
17 So the study concluded the supine position as a better one because there is more increase in intervertebral space to alleviate compression on trapped nerve roots
as compared to sitting position cervical traction.
Since the first contralateral C7 (CC7) nerve root
transfer was performed in Shanghai Huashan Hospital in 1986 by Dr.
Foraminal stenosis typically causes pain in just one leg because it affects just one nerve root
The nerve roots
of the cauda equina may also show crowding and redundancy above the site of narrowing (Figure 17).
Furthermore, placing the stimulating coils tangentially over the spine or over the latero-posterior-inferior aspect of the head would excite the nerve roots
or cranial nerves at fixed points in or near their exiting foramina, eliciting muscle responses with stable latencies.
Prefixed brachial plexus anomalies were also fairly common in patients presenting with symptoms attributable to the higher nerve roots
, or in patients whose symptoms were not distinctively attributable to specific nerve roots
within the brachial plexus.
Monitoring F-wave and H-reflexes intraoperatively provides a means of assessing complex spinal cord function and activity in ascending, descending, and spinal interneurons, and the dorsal and ventral nerve roots
The spread of active inflammation from the dorsal root ganglion to the anterior horn cells and anterior nerve roots
and involvement of the motor nerve are postulated to be involved.
Spinal stenosis is characterized by the narrowing of the canal of the spinal cord and of the base of the nerve roots
, and at the areas where the nerve roots
emit the spine to innervate the tissues.
SELECTIVE dorsal rhizotomy is very complex surgery that involves cutting the dorsal nerve roots
to reduce muscle spasms in the lower limbs.
