ventral rootlet (white pin)
Back
Forward
blue pin = denticulate ligament
white pin = ventral rootlet
The denticulate ligaments are extensions of pia mater that anchor it to the other meningeal layers and serve to provide stability to the spinal cord within the vertebral column. Note that the ventral rootlets are found anterior to the denticulate ligaments, while the dorsal rootlets are located posterior to the ligaments.
