The purpose of this article is to present a case of cauda equina syndrome in a patient with incomplete motor and sensory deficits due to epidural venous plexus engorgement, owing to May-Thurner syndrome successfully treated with venous iliac stenting. A 40-year-old woman, with previous history of deep vein thrombosis and miscarriages, gradually developed right leg and back pain, with functional limitation, perineal hypoesthesia, and sphincter incontinence. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed epidural venous plexus engorgement and cauda equina roots involvement.

S, Rodríguez-Salazar A Abstract OBJECTIVE: Cauda equina syndrome (CES) caused by lumbar disk extrusion is classically considered an indication of urgent surgery. CES can be subdivided into CESI (incomplete CES) and CESR (complete CES with urinary retention and incontinence). This paper evaluates the long-term functional outcome of a CES cohort operated on due to disk herniation. METHODS: Single-center retrospective observational study. CES patients due to disk herniation that underwent surgery between 2000 and 2016 were included in the study. Demographic data, time intervals to diagnosis and surgery, p...
