Abstract

The pathophysiology of Chiari-related symptoms and syringomyelia remains enigmatic. Present-day technology, most notably MR imaging, is providing progressively more sophisticated opportunities to test traditional as well as contemporary theories while adding to conventional animal models a selection of promising mechanical and computational representations of syringomyelia and its etiologies. We will briefly touch on the past and present of Chiari-related syringomyelia research with emphasis on essential questions related to the development of not just the anatomical anomalies but also the constellation of symptoms with which they are associated.
