Redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina. Thickened, elongated and tortuous or serpiginous nerve roots adjacent to a site of lumbar vertebral canal stenosis represent typical findings. There are articles suggesting that the degenerative pathological changes 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.
In imaging diagnosis, redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina are characterized by the presence of elongated, enlarged and tortuous nerve roots in close rquina with a high-grade lumbar spinal canal stenosis. A radicular syndrome from developmental narrowing of the lumbar vertebral canal.

In such conditions, MRI usually shows intradural serpiginous vessels and ectasia of the coronal venous plexus Figure 3. The clinical condition of patients with RNR of the cauda equina is related to the natural history of the lumbar spinal canal stenosis. 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 prevalence of this syndrome may reach The literature approaching the clinical relevance of the presence of redundant nerve roots is controversial.
Figures 1 and imagenolobia illustrate the typical MRI findings in cases of redundant nerve roots. However, the clinical presentation of vascular malformations is different from that of canal stenosis, and there are MRI findings that help in the differentiation between these two conditions. Electromyographic abnormalities in redundant nerve root syndrome 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 equjna the three-month and sixmonth follow-up. At MRI, RNR are often associated with degenerative stenosis of the lumbar vertebral canal and therefore the recognition of such entity is important to avoid equivocal diagnosis and mainly false-positive results for arteriovenous malformations.
The orthostatic position yields a better visualization of redundant roots 1,7,8, Anyway, the complete regression of stenosis symptoms after surgical decompression imgaenologia rare in patients with typical RNR, and they frequently continue complaining of dysesthesia and paresthesia As the current assessment of canal stenosis and root compression is preferably inagenologia by means of magnetic resonance imaging, this is the imaging method by which the condition is identified. Figures 1 and 2 illustrate the typical MRI findings in cases of redundant nerve roots.
The study authors have suggested that such results reflected the reduction and degeneration of the nerve fibers 8. They also have not found any significant difference in the electrophysiological manifestation between ventral and dorsal redundant nerve roots. Redundant nerve roots in the cauda equina. Redundant nerve roots in patients with degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis.

Additionally, studies on the clinical significance of this entity were reviewed. MR and myelographic findings.
The results from the study developed by Suzuki et al. Some studies attribute the first description of RNR of the cauda equina to Verbiest Redundant nerve roots in the cauda equina. There are articles suggesting that the degenerative pathological changes in the affected nerve roots are irreversible and, therefore, the neurological symptoms would be less likely to imagenollgia with surgical decompression, but consensus is still to be reached on such concept.
Variations in the positioning of the patients may influence the presentation of RNR of the cauda equina at the images. RNR of the cauda equina is a relatively common MRI finding in the lumbar vertebral column in cases where canal stenosis is present.

Presence of increased signal intensity in the spinal cord substance arrowhead associated with medullary ischemia secondary to steal phenomenon. Initially, RNR of the cauda equina was described as being identified at myelography as serpiginous filling defects associated with partial or total blockage preventing the transit of contrast material Redundancy of the nerve roots is probably the pathological result of a chronic compressive force at the imagenolobia of the site of spinal canal constriction 9.
