Anatomical relationship with the facet joint or the nerve root
is usually conclusive.

injury," Spine, vol.
Copies of the patient's MR images were subsequently obtained and these clearly revealed that the perineural cyst was displacing the left L4 nerve root
and had resulted in posterior vertebral body scalloping and enlargement of the left L4-5 neural foramen (Figures 1 and 2).
This reduces its water content and volume, thereby relieving disc pressure and compression on the spinal nerve root
, concluded the company.
Therefore, most disc herniations affect only the posterior side of the intervertebral disc structure, causing spinal cord or nerve root
This malady results from nerve root
impingement and/or inflammation that causes neurologic symptoms in the distribution of the affected nerve root(s).
Last year, Pele underwent back surgery for nerve root
decompression and also had prostate surgery.
compression by an artery, vein or distortion by adhesions or a combination of them compressing upon the trigeminal nerve root
was recorded on a predesigned proforma.
If the latencies of the muscle responses evoked by the abovementioned nerve root
stimulation is subtracted from the latencies of the motor responses evoked via TMS, the conduction time in the upper motor neuron involved in movement can be found.
This non-discogenic sciatica can be caused by any space-occupying lesion along the course of the lumbosacral nerve root
and the sciatic nerve and therefore it can be arbitrary divided into two general categories: intraspinal and extraspinal non-discogenic sciatica.
Each nerve root
from C5 to T1 was adequately dissected out and mobilised to avoid persistent symptoms.
This could be a facet joint injection, nerve root
block, or SI joint injection done on the same day at Cardiff Bay hospital, by the surgeon or a consultant radiologist."
