|German term or phrase: ein freier Bandscheibensequester|
|'Im Bereich des Wurzelabganges findet sich ein freier Bandscheibensequester'.|
What kind of an intervertebral disc sequester is this? If it can be translated as 'free', what does this mean exactly?
|English translation:sequestrated disc|
From painful personal experience... That's what the radiologist wrote in his CT report. I assume he knew what he was doing/writing!

free (or isolated) disc fragment / disc sequestrum
Freier Sequester is a bit redundant, as the sequestrum is, by definition, no longer attached to the disc from which it originated.
sequestrum: Disc tissue that has become displaced from the disc space of origin and lacks any continuity with disc material within the disc space of origin. Syn: disc fragment. See: sequestrated disc. Note: Sequestrum refers to the isolated fragment itself, whereas sequestrated disc defines the condition of the disc
The above reference might be quite useful for your project; it contains a glossary of terms related to the spinal cord.
Sequester (lat. sequestrare absondern) n: abgestorbenes Gewebe; z. B. Knochenstück, das vom gesunden Gewebe rundherum abgetrennt (demarkiert) ist. Vgl. Osteomyelitis.
