Treatment of symptomatic syringomyelia with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt: a case report with magnetic resonance scan correlation.
Neurosurgery. 1988 Apr; 22(4):748-50.N

Abstract

This report describes a patient with communicating syringomyelia associated with enlarged cerebral ventricles who was managed by placing a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. His clinical improvement was rapid and dramatic. A comparison of preoperative and postoperative magnetic resonance scans documents shrinkage of the cervical syrinx.
