Sample text

In Chiari type III malformation (CMIII), herniation of the cerebellum is combined with craniocervical meningoen - cephalocele and aplasia of the tentorium [208, 230] (Fig. 3). Chiari type IV malformation (CMIV) is characterized by hypoplasia or even aplasia of the cerebellar vermis. This malformation is discussed in the chapter section on rhombencephalic malformations (Sect. 2). Chiari himself suspected that these malformations were caused by congenital hydrocephalus in conjunction with a small posterior fossa.

Always associated with CMII are hydrocephalus, due to obstruction of foramina of Magendie and Luschka, and lumbar myelomeningocele. Sometimes additional features can be observed, such as a spina bifida of the upper cervical segments, dysplasia of the brains tern (especially midbrain), agenesis of the corpus callosum, hypoplasia of the tentorium, and bony anomalies of petro us bone and clivus [75, 208). In Chiari type III malformation (CMIII), herniation of the cerebellum is combined with craniocervical meningoen - cephalocele and aplasia of the tentorium [208, 230] (Fig.

Therefore, successful management of patients with syringomyelia requires, foremost, identification and appropriate management of the underlying disorder. If this can be achieved, syringomyelia no longer poses a threatening clinical problem because, at least, further progression of neurological symptoms will be prevented. Outcome and prognosis of patients with syringomyelia are determined primarily by the disease process which has caused the syrinx. In other words, it is not the syringomyelia but the causative pathology that primarily needs treatment.
