Radiologia Brasileira – Raízes nervosas redundantes da cauda equina: revisão da literatura

Less frequently, a plexiform neurofibroma or a neurinoma may cause thickening and redundancy of nerve roots J Bone Joint Surg Br. Myelographic block caused by redundant lumbar nerve root. The redundant nerve root syndrome of the cauda equina.

Suggested pathological basis of “redundant nerve root syndrome” of the cauda equina. The electrophysiological study of redundant nerve roots has demonstrated temporal dispersion of the action potential and delay of the velocity of the sensitive nervous conduction, although the difference in the velocity of sensitive nervous conduction has not been statistically significant 8.

The greater the relative length, the better the postoperative outcomes, a result eqiuna, at a first analysis, seems to be unexpected, leading the study authors to raise the hypothesis that such result was related to a greater accommodation capability of the longer redundant roots during flexion and extension of the spinal column, as related to effects of traction forces Cauda equina; Spinal stenosis; Spine; Magnetic resonance imaging.

Statistically significant difference in relation to clinical symptoms was found between groups A and C. The literature is controversial about the implication of the presence of RNR in the indication for decompressive surgery for spinal canal stenosis.

As the current assessment of canal stenosis and root compression is preferably performed by means of magnetic resonance imaging, this is the imaging method by which the condition is identified. The recognition of redundant nerve roots at magnetic resonance imaging is important, particularly to avoid misdiagnosing other conditions such as intradural arteriovenous malformations. The patients group where MRI demonstrated RNR of the cauda equina group A presented more severe clinical symptoms than group C, both pre- and postoperatively.

In such conditions, MRI usually shows intradural serpiginous vessels and ectasia of the coronal venous plexus Figure 3.

RNR are typically associated with vertebral canal stenosis, and clinically the patient presents neurogenic claudication. Variations in the positioning of the patients may influence the presentation of RNR of the cauda equina at the images.

Sur certaines formes rares de compression de la queue de cheval. The myelographic pattern described in redundant nerve roots rquina the eqquina equina corresponds to serpiginous intradural filling defects associated with a partial or complete blockage of the transit of contrast material and, therefore, spinal canal stenosis This is not an independent entity, but it is believed to be a consequence of the chronic compression at the level of the lumbar canal stenosis and thus may be part of the natural history of lumbar spinal stenosis.

Myelographic block caused by redundant lumbar nerve root. The “redundant” or “knotted” nerve root: Spontaneous extrusion of elongated roots usually occurs during the surgical opening of the dura imagenlogia 2,6,7,11, Redundant lumbar nerve root syndrome: They also have not found any significant difference in the electrophysiological manifestation between imagenplogia and dorsal redundant nerve roots. The opening of the dura mater may be performed to rule out the hypothesis of arteriovenous malformation 7 or simply because surgeons have decided that such a procedure should be a part of the decompression 6, Arch Phys Med Rehabil.

The literature is controversial about the implication of the presence of RNR in the indication for decompressive surgery for spinal canal stenosis. Some studies attribute the first description of RNR of the cauda equina to Verbiest Currently, myelography has been widely replaced by MRI and its utilization has squina restricted to the rare cases where MRI is contraindicated or for those cases where postoperative metal artifacts are enough to severely degrade MRI images.

The authors standardized the measurement of the relative length of the nerve roots on the most central sagittal image of the lumbar column. The authors standardized the measurement of the relative length of the nerve roots on the most central sagittal image of the lumbar column. The main pathological findings in patients with RNR of the cauda equina were derangement and reduction in the number of nervous fibers, demyelination, besides endoneural fibrosis and Schwann cells proliferation 8,9.

Redundant lumbar nerve root syndrome: Redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina: The topographic distribution in observed in cases of redundant nerve roots imaegnologia Dural arteriovenous fistula is usually associated with abnormalities in signal intensity of the spinal cord on MRI T2-weighted sequences How to cite this article.

Therefore the authors of the present review suggest that radiologists should look for RNR of the cauda equina at MRI and, if applicable, describe such finding in their reports. At MRI, the main differential diagnosis must be done with dural arteriovenous malformations or arteriovenous fistulas. Therefore the authors of the present review suggest that radiologists should look for RNR of the cauda equina at MRI and, if applicable, describe such finding in their reports.

Serpentine cauda equina nerve roots.

Redundant nerve roots in the cauda equina. However, the clinical presentation of vascular malformations is different from that eqyina canal stenosis, and there are MRI findings that help in the differentiation between these two conditions.

The clinical condition of patients with Equuna of the cauda equina is related to the natural history of the lumbar spinal canal stenosis. Spontaneous extrusion of elongated roots usually occurs during the surgical opening of the dura mater 2,6,7,11, RNR of the cauda equina is a relatively common MRI finding in the lumbar vertebral column in cases where canal stenosis is present.
