The nerve roots are particularly susceptible to the consequences of vascular compression, particularly venous compression, because they lack lymphatics. Consequently, there are no alternative channels whereby exudated fluid can leave the roots. Intraneural and perineural edema can interfere with nerve conduction by exerting pressure on axons. Nerve root ischemia can be the result of longstanding edema or inflammatory exudate, which tends to organize, that is, convert to fibrous tissue. This system of maintaining the pressure hierarchy of the intervertebral foramen is described as follows: (Pa > Pc > Pv > Pf > Pt) meaning the pressure in the artery must be greater than the pressure in the capillary, which must be greater than the pressure in the vein, which must be greater than the intrafascicular pressure of the spinal nerve, which finally in turn must be greater than the pressure of the “tunnel” or IVF itself.
