PMID:  15799197     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Anatomical variations of neural structures in the cervical spine are rare and are not necessarily visible on pre-operative imaging. The authors report an unusual arrangement of neural structures identified during cervical foraminotomy. Anatomical variations of the cervical nerve roots are reviewed and their importance in neurosurgical practice is discussed.
