London Roundtable: The case for addressing cranio-cervical instability
ROYAL SOCIETY OF MEDICINE - LONDON, UK - SEPTEMBER 13, 2019
Stretching of the nerves in the brain (caused by compression around the cranio-cervical junction) can create several different symptoms or clinical problems. This type of stretch is often brought on by disorders that are known to cause cranio-cervical instability, including Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
Dr. Fraser C. Henderson
makes the case, therefore, that instability is something that must be considered in differential diagnoses when assessing patients with conditions at the level of the cranio-cervical junction. This is especially for patients who struggle with disorders that may require neurosurgical treatment, as successful surgery may require proper assessment of stability issues.
This lecture was presented at the 2019 London Roundtable, provided in partnership with the Ehlers-Danlos Society
, discussing issues including dysautonomia, connective tissue disorders, Chiari malformation and related syndromes. (2019)
