Abstract

The management of septated, chambered syringomyelia has until now been problematic because the usual operative methods cannot secure drainage of all chambers of the cavity. The development of a flexible neuroendoscope affords the possibility to perforate the septa under visual control which subdivide the cavity. We present our experiences with 11 cases of septated syringomyelia, which have been operated upon using a flexible neuroendoscope.
