AbstractWhile correction surgery for syringomyelia-associated scoliosis frequently results in an elongation of the spine and may potentially influence the natural history of syringomyelia, a paucity of data exists regarding the syrinx behavior in the postoperative course. This study aimed to investigate the natural evolution of syrinx in patients undergoing one-stage posterior instrumented spinal fusion for treatment of scoliosis associated with idiopathic syringomyelia (IS).
