Ten patients with syringomyelia associated with Arnold-Chiari Type I malformations were evaluated. In each patient, a manometric Queckenstedt test was performed with the neck in various positions. No patient showed evidence of a block to the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) with the neck in the extended position; however, all showed a complete CSF block with the neck in a flexed position. Posterior fossa decompression with a C1-2 laminectomy was performed in nine cases, after which… CONTINUE READING
