ETV for successful treatment of holocord syrinx with hydrocephalus: a case report.
Br J Neurosurg. 2021 Feb; 35(1):7-10.BJ

Abstract

AIM

to present evidence for the use of endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) in the treatment of holocord syrinx.

METHODS

ETV has been used in the treatment of obstructive hydrocephalus and syringomyelia secondary to Chiari 1 malformation. However, there have been no reports of ETV being utilised in the management of a holocord. We report a case of an 18 year old male with a symptomatic holocord syrinx who was successfully treated via ETV.

RESULTS

neurological improvement was noted both immediately and at follow up following ETV.

CONCLUSION

ETV may represent a viable treatment option for holocord syrinx in some population groups.
