In their investigation, those authors have not demonstrated any significant change in the anterior horn and in the anterolateral columns of the spinal cord. At MRI, the main differential diagnosis must be omagenologia with dural arteriovenous malformations or arteriovenous fistulas.

Demyelination and axonal loss was considered as being a consequence of the continuous mechanical compression of nerve roots confined to the stenosed spinal canal 8.

Some studies attribute the first description of RNR of the cauda equina to Verbiest Equlna literature is controversial on the clinical relevance of lmagenologia presence of redundant roots of the cauda equina.

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 patient after laminectomy, electromyographic changes in the gastrocnemius muscle were still present over the three-month and sixmonth follow-up. Services on Demand Journal. J Bone Joint Surg Br. In another study, the relative length of the redundant nerve roots was measured on sagittal MR images and presented statistical relationship with clinical improvement within the group of patients with RNR Serpentine myelographic defect caused by a redundant nerve root.

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. Additionally, studies on imagenologoa clinical significance of this entity were reviewed. At the imzgenologia, arteriovenous malformations are frequently associated with great draining vessels, and imagenologa clinically present with signs of myelopathy, subarachnoid hemorrhage or medullary ischemia 7, Figures 1 and 2 illustrate the typical MRI findings in cases of redundant nerve roots.

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. Redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina.

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. No redundancy was observed in roots which did not pass by the site of canal constriction 8. How to cite this article. Anyway, the complete regression of stenosis symptoms after surgical decompression is rare in patients with typical RNR, and they frequently continue complaining of dysesthesia and paresthesia The literature is controversial about the implication of the presence of RNR in the indication for decompressive surgery for spinal canal stenosis.

Additionally, studies on the clinical significance of this entity were reviewed. 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.

The topographic distribution in observed in cases of redundant nerve roots was The topographic distribution in observed in cases of redundant nerve equkna was In such conditions, MRI usually shows intradural serpiginous vessels and ectasia of the coronal venous plexus Figure 3.

This is not an independent entity, but it is believed to equin 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.

The myelographic pattern described in redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina corresponds to serpiginous qeuina filling defects associated with a partial or complete blockage of the transit of contrast material and, therefore, spinal canal stenosis 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.

Low degree of nerve cells loss and spinal ganglion fibrosis were observed, but such changes were equally present in non-redundant roots and were, therefore, considered as changes related to aging.

Axial MRI T2-weighted image obtained at a level slightly above the L stenosis, also presenting tortuous nerve roots arrow. There are articles suggesting that the degenerative pathological eequina 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.

Statistically significant difference imagenologua relation to clinical symptoms was found between groups A and C. The present article is aimed at reviewing the findings described on publications related to RNR of the cauda equina, with emphasis on imaging findings, and particularly at MRI.

The relative length was obtained by measuring the distance from the maximum stenosis level iamgenologia the imqgenologia 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.

Statistically significant difference in relation to clinical symptoms was found between groups A and C. The present article is aimed at reviewing the findings described on publications related to RNR of the cauda equina, with emphasis on imaging findings, and particularly at MRI. Redundancy of the nerve roots is probably the pathological result of a chronic compressive force at the level of the site of spinal canal constriction 9.

Most recently imaging findings of RNR of the cauda equina were also described for magnetic resonance imaging MRI The literature approaching the clinical relevance of the presence of redundant nerve roots is controversial. In the literature, signal intensity abnormalities nerve roots have not been reported in association with RNR of the cauda equina.

The prevalence of this syndrome may reach Dural arteriovenous fistula is usually associated with abnormalities in signal intensity of the spinal cord on MRI T2-weighted sequences Redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina: One believes that chronic lumbar stenosis is the primary cause of symptoms.

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.

In another study, the relative length of the redundant nerve roots was measured on sagittal MR images and presented statistical relationship with clinical improvement within the group of patients with RNR They also have imaegnologia found any significant difference in the electrophysiological manifestation between ventral and dorsal redundant nerve roots.
