New considerations about Chiari-like malformation, syringomyelia and their management
  1. Clare Rusbridge

Abstract

Background: Chiari-like malformation (CM) is a developmental condition, characterised by a conformational change and overcrowding of the brain and cranial cervical spinal cord. CM-associated pain (CM-P) and syringomyelia are increasingly being diagnosed, due to the rising popularity of predisposed brachycephalic breeds and the availability of MRI in veterinary practices.

Aim of the article: This article aims to update the veterinary profession on these conditions, and provides a guide to diagnosis and treatment of clinically relevant disease.
