The precise point of intradural rupture in preganglionic traction injuries to the brachial plexus has been a subject of controversy. In this study of avulsed roots we have shown that rupture occurs at varying levels. True avulsion of the root with attached spinal cord tissue was seen in two cases and in the remainder rupture was peripheral to the central-peripheral transition zone. We have further shown that corpora amylacea marked the boundary between tissue of the central and peripheral nervous systems. This observation provides a basis for renewed work towards the direct repair of intradural ruptures of the ventral and dorsal roots.
