Statistics from Altmetric.com

We are interested in reaching surgeons who have witnessed patients exhibiting any degree of tetraparesis in the sitting, semisitting, or horizontal position after posterior fossa surgery. We have been collecting such patients for nearly 15 years and are interested in evaluating further case histories, surgical and anaesthetic records, postmortem data, and radiological studies when possible. Complete patient and surgeon anonymity will be maintained. We plan on testing our hypothesis for the cause of this devastating complication by compiling case data and identifying similarities.

Please forward appropriate case information to us.
