Proc. ASME. SBC2009, ASME 2009 Summer Bioengineering Conference, Parts A and B, 941-942, June 17–21, 2009
Paper No: SBC2009-204685
... Full explanation for the formation and pathogenesis of syringomyelia (SM), a neurological pathology characterized by the formation of a cystic cavity (syrinx) in the center of the spinal cord (SC), has not yet been given. The SM pathology forms a coaxial elastic tube system with the inner tube...

... Five in vitro models were constructed which were representative of various pathologies of the spinal canal (SC) associated with syringomyelia (SM). The models were subjected to a cough type flow impulse while monitoring the pressure environment in the syrinx and subarachnoid space (SAS) regions...

Paper No: SBC2010-19433
... Syringomyelia (SM) is a neurological disease in which a fluid-filled cystic cavity, or syrinx, forms in the spinal cord (SC) resulting in progressive loss of sensory, motor functions, and/or pain in the patient. It has been hypothesized that abnormal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure...
