  • This study of the arterial blood of the spinal cord indicates that, of the 62 radicular branches (rami radiculares), at the most seven or eight truly participate in the vascularization of the spinal cord. The authors have observed that the situation and distribution of these branches enable the distinction of three large arterial areas: cervicothoracic, midthoracic, and thoracolumbar. The fixed nature of the intramedullary arterial distribution contrasts with the variability of the afferent… CONTINUE READING
