Invited guests: Rafael Holmgren, neurosurgeon, Linköping and Nanna Brix Finnerup, pain specialist, Aarhus.
Syringomyelia is a rare but rather complex and potentially devastating complication to spinal cord injury. Both a conservative approach and neurosurgery may be advocated, but evidence is very limited.
How do we adress the patients’ needs as professionals working with SCI patients? What experience is there concerning physical exercises, ADL, pain management? How can we collaborate between disciplines to identify patients that will profit from neurosurgery - and those that will not? What kind of rehab do patients need after neurosurgery? What projects/research initiatives are going on?
Come and exchange experiences concerning these and other questions in our special interest group on syringomyelia
