Tethered Cord Syndrome Images and Video

 Operative view in a case of Tethered Cord.

Operative view in a case of Tethered Cord. We are looking at the filum terminale before it is cut. This is the structure that tethers the spinal cord.

This video demonstrates an Intra-operative view showing the sectioning of the filum terminale in the case of tethered spinal cord. Note the brisk retraction of the filum once it has been cut indicating that it had been under tension.
