Syringomyelia Pathophysiology: Basic & Clinical Science
4th International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium
GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY - ATLANTA, GA - JUNE 19-20, 2017
Dr. Marcus Stoodley (Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia) highlights what is known and what we hope to know about syringomyelia, how it progresses and the prognosis for patients who are affected by it. Dr. Stoodley was one of two esteemed plenary speakers at the 2017 Hydrodynamics Symposium. Dr. Stoodley was also one of the handful of clinical neurosurgery specialists in the room to keep the conversation about real patients, and not just math or numbers.
This presentation was given at the 4th International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This biennial conference brings together scientists, engineers, clinicians and mathematicians from around the world to discuss the underlying mechanisms that cause disorders of CSF flow, like syringomyelia
and Chiari malformation
Participants discuss their own research and bounce ideas off one another to better comprehend these poorly understood mechanisms. Thanks to Dr. John Oshinski
and Dr. M. Keith Sharp
for organizing this year's scientific program.
CSF is proud to once again support this incredible meeting of the minds. This support is made possible by a generous grant from the Monkton Institute, Inc.
