  • Untethering improves spasticity and motor and sensory loss post SCI-related syringomyelia.
  • Subarachnoid-subarachnoid bypass may improve motor and sensory functioning, dysesthesia, and pain post SCI-related syringomyelia.
  • Cordectomy may improve motor and sensory function post SCI-related syringomyelia.
  • Cordectomy may improve quality of life post SCI-related syringomyelia.
  • Embryonic tissue transplantation may destroy syringomyelia cysts and improve sensory loss.
