Figure 8: Nerve avulsions/Sunderland grade V injury. A 23 year old man, status post motor vehicle accident, presented with flail left arm and clinical suspicion of severe brachial plexus injury. EMG 5 months after initial injury suggested predominantly upper trunk brachial plexopathy and other co-existent nerve root injuries could not be excluded. MRN was obtained a month after to exclude Sunderland grade V injury. Coronal T2 SPACE image (A) shows pseudomeningoceles with avulsions of ventral and dorsal nerve roots and lateral displacement of dorsal root ganglia (arrows)
