Sample text

This procedure is called a lumbar puncture and must be performed using sterile technique. A trochar (which is a large needle with a smaller needle inside) is inserted below the termination of the spinal cord at L2, in the space between the vertebra, usually between the vertebra L4–L5 (see Figure 1). The trochar must pierce the very tough ligamentum flavum (shown in the next illustration), then the dura-arachnoid, and then “suddenly” enters into the lumbar cistern; the (inner) needle is withdrawn and CSF drips out to be collected in sterile vials.

The dorsal region of the gray matter, called the dorsal or posterior horn, is associated with the incoming (afferent) dorsal root, and is thus related to sensory functions. The cell body of these sensory fibers is located in the dorsal root ganglion (see Figure 1). The dorsal horn is quite prominent in this region because of the very large sensory input to this segment of the cord from the upper limb, particularly from the hand. The situation is similar in the lumbar region (as shown in the middle of the three lower illustrations).

The details of the location of the cranial nerve nuclei within the brainstem will be described in Section C of this atlas (Neurological Neuroanatomy) with Figure 64–Figure 67. CN V, TRIGEMINAL NERVE The major sensory nerve of the head region is the trigeminal nerve, CN V, through its three divisions peripherally (ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular). The sensory ganglion for this nerve, the trigeminal ganglion, is located inside the skull. The nerve supplies the skin of the scalp and face, the conjunctiva of the eye and the eyeball, the teeth, and the mucous membranes inside the head, including the surface of the tongue (but not taste — see below).
