Posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) is one of the three vessels that provide arterial supply to the cerebellum. It is the most variable and tortuous cerebellar.

Patients should address specific medical concerns with their physicians.
Conclusions We have reported the second case of the successful management of syringomyelia associated to posteroinfetior Chiari malformation secondary to a retrocerebellar arachnoid cyst. Related Topics in Cardiovascular Medicine.

Endoscopic fenestration of posterior fossa arachnoid cyst for the treatment of presyrinx myelopathy. Magnetic resonance imaging MRI showed a retrocerebellar arachnoid cyst, descent of the cerebellar tonsils and a syringomyelic cavity extending from C2 to T6 Fig.
Ten patients had hydrocephalus of diverse severity that would contribute to the formation of the cereelosa cavity. As in other instances of hydrocephalus-associated syringomyelia, the initial treatment for hydrocephalus in our patient was aimed at alleviating ppsteroinferior raised intracranial pressure to prevent the risk of acute cerebellar herniation that can occur during the posterior fossa procedure.
Signs and Symptoms Extra: On 3 Augustan endoscopic third ventriculostomy was performed, after which the headaches markedly improved.
Preoperative MRI study of the patient showing: Syringomyelia with Chiari malformation: Posteroinefrior endoscopic third ventriculostomy, the patient was submitted to foramen magnum decompression and arachnoid cyst removal that were followed by resolution of both the Chiari malformation and the syringomyelia.
Pathophisiology of syringomyelia associated with Chiari I malformation of the cerebellar tonsils. Br J Neurosurg ; Several publications have documented the denovo appearance of tonsillar herniation in a variety of conditions including supra e infratentorial brain tumors, pseudotumor cerebri, craniosynostosis, cranio-encephalic disproportion, or overdrainage of CSF 1. In these cases there exists a pressure gradient across the cranial and spinal compartments, due either to increased intracranial pressure, as happens in supratentorial masses or arteira, or to CSF diversion into the spinal compartment.
In our literature review, we found 15 cases of syringomyelia accompanying diverse cystic processes of the posterior cranial fossa, such as congenital arachnoid cysts, Dandy-Walker malformation, Blake’s pouch cyst, and posttraumatic CSF pouches, which are summarized in the Table ,10, Posterior fossa arachnoid cysts roughly represent one fourth of all these congenital pouches. Dynamic CSF flow study in the pathophysiology of syringomyelia associated with arachnoid cysts of the posterior fossa.
Definition NCI A syndrome caused by an infarct in the vertebral or posterior inferior cerebellar artery. Anatomical terminology [ edit on Wikidata ]. Although access to this website is not restricted, the information found here is intended for use by medical providers.
Severe occlusion of this artery or to vertebral arteries could lead to Horner’s Syndrome as well. It winds backward around the upper part of the medulla oblongatapassing between the origins of the vagus nerve and the accessory nerveover the inferior cerebellar peduncle to the undersurface of the cerebellumwhere it divides into two branches.
The case reported by Bauer et al. Neurosurg Focus ; 19 5 E Arteries of the head and neck. This anomaly is one of the four types of hindbrain malformations described by Hans Chiari in 1, The so-called “acquired” Chiari malformation seems to be better characterized 1.
From current literature, it becomes obvious that patients with syringomyelia or Chiari malformation must be managed in an individualized manner taking into account the pathogenetic factors involved in their development 1, Syringomyelia in association with posterior fossa cysts.
Implications for diagnosis and treatment. J Korean Neurosurg Soc ; Marin-Padilla and Marin Padilla attributed the development of the Chiari malformation to a primary defect in the development cegebelosa the basicranium 9. Disease or Syndrome T Evidence supports the hypothesis that the main problem in the Chiari I malformation is a posterior cranial fossa of smaller than normal volume Descompresion del agujero magno.
