Traumatic Cervical Radiculopathy
This exhibit depicts traumatic sagittal and axial disc herniations with subsequent cervical radiculopathy. Sagittally, disc herniations are seen indenting the spinal cord at C5-6 and C6-7. An axial section of C6-7 shows the effects of the disc herniation on exiting C7 nerve roots. Nerve root impingement causes radiating cervical radiculopathy pain in the C7 dermatome.
