Obex Exploration & Duraplasty to Improve Syrinx Resolution Following Chiari Decompression
2019 Bobby Jones CSF Think Tank
SPRINGHILL SUITES DOWNTOWN - SAN DIEGO, CA - APRIL 13, 2019
The 2019 Think Tank research meeting brought together thought leaders in the field of Chiari and related disorders, featuring presentations of novel research in Chiari, syringomyelia and more.
Dr. Anthony Wang
, now specializing in pediatric neurosurgery at UCLA
, describes the work he did in his previous fellowship at Seattle Children's Hospital
studying the outcomes of various surgical techniques performed in Chiari
Specifically, Dr. Wang and his colleagues found that techniques like obex exploration and duraplasty seem to improve the likelihood of a syrinx (syringomyelia
) resolving after surgery in patients undergoing Chiari decompression surgery.
