The study authors have suggested that such results reflected the reduction and degeneration of the nerve fibers 8. Spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas: The present paper is aimed at reviewing the histopathological, electrophysiological and imaging findings, particularly at magnetic resonance imaging, as well as the clinical meaning of this entity.
Elongated and tortuous nerve roots of the cauda equina can be identified arrow. The literature approaching the clinical relevance of the presence of redundant nerve roots is controversial. The clinical condition of patients with RNR of the cauda equina is related to the natural history of the lumbar spinal canal stenosis.

Redundant lumbar nerve root syndrome: Thickened, elongated and tortuous or serpiginous nerve roots adjacent to a site of lumbar vertebral canal stenosis represent typical findings. In that study, the velocity of conduction of redundant nerve roots was approximately one half the normal value and, in general, the redundant nerve roots presented multiphase action potentials temporarily dispersed as compared with the normal roots. The present paper is aimed at reviewing the histopathological, electrophysiological and imaging findings, particularly at magnetic resonance imaging, as well as the clinical meaning of this entity.
Thickened, elongated and tortuous imagenolotia serpiginous nerve roots adjacent to a site of lumbar vertebral canal stenosis represent typical findings. Statistically significant difference in relation to clinical symptoms was found between groups A and C. Such report has documented preoperative partial denervation of the left medial segment of the gastrocnemius muscle and, in spite of the significant pain relief experienced by the equinna after laminectomy, electromyographic changes in the gastrocnemius muscle were still present over the three-month and six-month follow-up.
The literature is controversial on the clinical relevance of the presence of redundant roots of the cauda equina. 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. 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.

The myelographic pattern described in redundant nerve roots of the cauda 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 In two other studies, the postoperative improvement was not statistically different in patients with and without RNR of the cauda equina 12,13but in one of those studies a tendency towards worse results for patients with RNR of the cauda equina was identified, similarly to the results reported by Ono et al.
Only one case report approached the evaluation of electromyographic changes related to RNR of the cauda equina in the postoperative period At the images, arteriovenous malformations are frequently associated with great draining vessels, and may clinically present with signs of myelopathy, subarachnoid hemorrhage or medullary ischemia 7, There are articles suggesting that the degenerative pathological changes in the affected nerve roots are irreversible and, therefore, the neurological symptoms would be less likely to improve with surgical decompression, but consensus is still to be reached on such concept.
The literature is controversial on the clinical relevance of the presence of redundant roots of the cauda equina. Such studies specifically mention an article where Verbiest has described a series of surgically confirmed cases of lumbar spinal stenosis 14 but, as the original text was evaluated, the authors of the present review concluded that Verbiest described elongated nerve roots in another series of cases about rare presentations of cauda equina compression Measurements of the redundant and non-redundant nerve roots conduction velocity were performed during surgery The relative length was obtained by measuring the distance from the maximum stenosis level to the most distant point where the presence of redundant roots could be identified, and by dividing such obtained value by the height of the vertebral body located above the stenosis level.
imaagenologia A radicular equinz from developmental narrowing of the lumbar vertebral canal. Coronal MRI T2-weighted image also demonstrating dilated serpiginous vessels in the venous plexus arrow. At the images, arteriovenous malformations are frequently associated with great draining vessels, and may clinically present with signs of myelopathy, subarachnoid hemorrhage or medullary ischemia 7, Arch Phys Med Rehabil.
The clinical condition of patients with RNR of the cauda equina is related to the natural history of the lumbar spinal canal stenosis.
Redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina: review of the literature
Sagittal MRI T2-weighted image demonstrates severe lumbar spinal canal stenosis arrow and redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina roots arrowheads. Cauda equina; Spinal stenosis; Spine; Magnetic resonance imaging. At the time, myelography was the only imaging method available to document the anatomy and pathology of nerve roots of the cauda equina in vivo.
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 iagenologia decompression 6, Other diseases can cause hypertrophic neuropathy such as arachnoiditis, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy and some hereditary neuropathies; but association between such entities and serpiginous nerve roots of cauda equina was not reported.
Sagittal MRI T2-weighted image demonstrates degenerative changes of the spine with disc herniation and vertebral canal stenosis at L and L levels arrowhead.
RNR are typically associated with vertebral canal stenosis, and clinically the patient presents neurogenic claudication. They also have not found any significant difference in the electrophysiological manifestation between ventral and dorsal redundant nerve roots. Redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina.
