To investigate pathogenesis of redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina, which were concomitant with severe lumbar spinal canal stenosis, six cadavers were examined anatomically and histopathologically, and quantitative analysis of nerve fibers was performed. In this anatomic study, it was observed that all the redundant nerve roots passed through the constriction of the spinal canal. No significant pathologic change was detected in the spinal ganglia and in the spinal cords except for the… CONTINUE READING
