London Roundtable: Grabb-Mapstone-Oakes metric and measurement
ROYAL SOCIETY OF MEDICINE - LONDON, UK - SEPTEMBER 13, 2019
Dr. Indran Davagnanam
gives a brief, yet comprehensive overview on the Grabb-Mapstone-Oakes measurement (sometimes called the "Grabb-Oakes", or the "pB-C2" measurement). The initial purpose of this measurement was to better understand compression on the front (ventral) part of the brainstem. Dr. Davagnanam describes how radiologists and neurosurgeons measure this and then he relates how this measurement comes into play with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
and connective tissue disorder patients.
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)
