Radiologic evaluation of the relation of the screw tip to the nerve root in the intervertebral foramen.

Abstract

Eight cervical spines were used to evaluate the relation of the screw tip to the nerve root in the intervertebral foramen. The specimens were divided into two groups: (a) lateral placement without contact with the nerve root, and (b) lateral placement with penetration of the nerve root.
