Lateral View of the Left Trigeminal Nerve

Surgical Correlation


A nerve hook is between the large aberrant sensory rootlet and the main sensory root. An aberrant rootlet arises from the pons directly lateral to the sensory root and joins the sensory root about 1 cm from the brainstem. Four motor rootlets are seen above the sensory root.
