Information: Pseudomeningocoele after Brachial Plexus Nerve Root Avulsion


Animation: Demonstration of traumatic pseudomeningocoeles.

The MR Neurography imaging technique also provides a useful MR myelogram capable of efficient demonstrations of traumatic pseudomeningocoeles. This term refers to the residual nerve lining left behind when the nerve elements are literally pulled out of the spinal cord by a severe injury

Although, these images are still not always definitive in the confirmation of true nerve root avulsion they are more reliable for making this diagnosis than the other available imaging techniques.
