Duplicated filum terminale in non-split cord malformations: An underrecognized cause for treatment failure in tethered cord syndrome
The journal of spinal cord medicine | 14 Oct 2016
D Starnoni, JM Duff and GC Viswanathan
Anatomical variations of the filum terminale (FT) have been described in association with split cord malformations (SCM) but they appear to be a rare finding in its absence. We report the first case in literature of a duplicated FT in a patient presenting with tethered cord syndrome (TCS) without any radiological evidence of SCM.
