Histological differences between rootlets sectioned during selective posterior rhizotomy by two surgical techniques


During selective posterior rhizotomy, for the treatment of spasticity in infantile cerebral palsy, the rootlets to be divided are chosen by the type of electromyographic response elicited by intraoperative electrical stimulation.
