Although recognized as a spinal cord disorder as early as the 1500s, the precise diagnosis of, and optimum treatment of Syringomyelia and the Chiari malformation remain elusive. During the past decade, MRI technology, intra-operative ultrasonography, clinical series and case reports, and experimental investigations have made diagnosis easier, enabling those afflicted to receive treatment during earlier stages of the disorder. Syringomyelia and the Chiari Malformation provides readers with the most recent information on the classifications, pathology and development of Syringomyelia and Chiari malformations. The editors also provide a history of these conditions. Specific surgical and non-surgical management strategies and special considerations are also covered in detail. Topics covered in Syringomyelia and the Chiari Malformation: -Classification of the Chiari malformations and Syringomyelia -Pathogenesis and development theories -The relationship between Syringomyelia and Chiari malformations -Post-traumatic Syringomyelia -Management schemes for Syringomyelia: surgical indications and nonsurgical management -Shunting procedures for Syringomyelia in Chiari malformation -Plus much more!
