Title: Current occurence of intraspinal intradural and extradural communicating branches in the spinal canal
Author: V. Matejcik, Z. Haviarova, R. Kuruc, J. Steno

Abstract: THE AIM of this work is to point out the intraspinal anatomical current occurrence interconnections between intradural and extradural nerve roots and their possible participation in radiculopathy.
METHODS: The anatomical study was performed in 43 cadavers with a mean age of 53.7. All intradural and extradural rami communicantes between nerve roots were excised and examined histologically for the presence or absence of nervous tissue.
RESULTS: Anatomical preparations revealed intradural and extradural rami communicantes in 9 cases (20.9 %), mostly in the cervical region in 5 cases and by plexus formation variations in 5 cases. Multiple extradural rami communicantes were observed in 6 cases (13.95 %), including the simultaneous occurrence of multiple intradural and extradural ones in 5 cases (11.6 %).
CONCLUSIONS: This study allowed us to identify and describe unpublished intraspinal current occurrence intradural-extradural rami communicantes of nerve roots and their interrelationships throughout the spinal canal with their potential influence on the clinical picture (Tab. 1, Fig. 4, Ref. 25).

Keywords: intraspinal nerve roots, intradural nerve roots, extradural nerve roots, nerve roots variations
