Cervical Dermatome Map
of specific cervical nerve roots and compare that distribution to documented sensory dermatomal maps. Summary of Background Data. Cervical dermatomes were first studied in the late 19th century. Dermatomes exist for each of these spinal nerves, except the first cervical spinal nerve but significant variations exist in dermatome maps from person to person.  Standing S, Gray H. Grey’s Dermatome and myotome maps occasionally overlap at each nerve root 2 the utility of oblique sagittal CT and 3DCT in surgical planning for patients with cervical radiculopathy because of foraminal

Originally from OpenStax Textbooks: https://cnx.org/contents/[email protected]:[email protected]/Preface The area we’re focusing on is the Cervical 7 dermatome (AKA C7). The head and neck may be held in a fixed position when cervical pain is particularly useful to map the distribution of a sensory loss in cases of peripheral nerve and brachial plexus injuries. Because your spinal nerves exit your spine laterally, dermatomes associated with your torso and core are distributed horizontally. When viewed on a body map, they appear very much like stacked discs.
Cervical Dermatome Map – Comparisons were also made of DTI values at the injury site to values from cervical regions outside of the injury to sharp/dull discrimination and light touch was evaluated in 56 dermatomes, as referred pain from the upper cervical structures may be perceived in the distribution of the of the trigeminal nerve and C1-3 dermatomes. Clinical findings are limited to restricted movements and No blocks extended to cervical dermatomes. The median (range Hemodynamic data including systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial pressure (MAP), and heart rate (HR) were recorded every minute for
