Two cases of the syndrome of redundant nerve roots of the cauda equina are reported. Both cases were treated surgically. A review of the clinical picture, management, and etiology is presented. In each case, preoperative and postoperative myelography was performed; in one patient myelography demonstrated a complete resolution of the characteristic serpentine filling defects.
