Post Dermatome Map Web Site

A friend showed me this web site that allows you to click on a part of an anatomical drawing and see which nerves affect that area. I thought I would share it with the entire group.

Fun site, but not very accurate. Outside of the calf is L5, for example. See [url="http://www.clt.astate.edu./slesh/sensory2.jpg"]www.clt.astate.edu./slesh/sensory2.jpg[/url] .

Thanks, HNP. I had always wondered about that. I do like the interactive nature of it. It should be noted on your link, that if you change sensory2.jpg to sensory1.jpg, you the anterior view of the chart. Very cool.

BTW, what is an HNP? I'm still learning about all the surguries. I have a herniation at L4/L5 and will most likely need surgery, and will be speaking with my Neurosurgeon this Friday to see if I can have a minimally invasive procedure.

Thanks for the new link. If anyone else has links, post them.

if you hit the little guy in the back area rather than in your pain area, you end up with the same areas as the chart posted by HNP. It is a neat chart and I wanted to see if I could replicate the actual chart HNP left, and it does work. Even worked each time on just hitting the outside of calf, guess its just very sensitive and matters which cursor size you use, I don't know.

Just neat and something to play with when bored.

Hi wbaker68, My cursor is way too bulky to get accurate info from the interactive chart. Alas. It is a really fun site.

jdog, some folks (e.g., Jesse) call me Pat , but HNP stands for [b]H[/b]erniated [b]N[/b]ucleus [b]P[/b]ulposus. The nucleus pulposus is the spongy material inside the disc that herniates when you have a tear in the annulus of the disc and do something unwise (in my case, move full file cabinets across rugs, drive trucks, etc). My surgeon never spoke to me in English, but I wanted to understand exactly what he was saying, so I learned his language!

Hi Lisa,

Here you go

Baxter [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif[/img]

------------------
Two level laminectomy fusion L5-S1 & L2-3 done on 12/6/02.
Fifteen inch scar from the very top of butt crack (sorry), to the bra line.
BAK cages, rods & screws.(Titanium)
My pelvic bone was used for grafting.
Praying that the other two discs in between, won't have to be fused later, as I was told it was a possibility, due to the other two discs in between, not being in that great of shape.
Doc didn't want to fuse four levels, unless it is really necessary.
I would hate to repeat the surgery, as the recovery period, is so very painful.
I also have a free fragment in my T11-12 area, that I'm still refusing surgery for, at this point in time.
That surgery is way too dangerous for me to consider, until if affects my being able to walk.

Thanks for this web site. It is fun to play around with. Definetly worth checking out if you're not sure where your pain is coming from.
