Abstract

Objective: Various reasons have been ascribed to arachnoiditis development, among which subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) may be an important factor in this process. In this experimental study, we investigated the effect of SAH on histopathological findings. The volumetric changes of the radicular arteries and the density of spinal nerve root axons of a SAH model on C-4 roots in rabbits were measured.
