SEPs and CNS magnetic stimulation in syringomyelia.

Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) and motor evoked potentials (MEPs) to transcranial and spinal stimulation from upper and lower limb muscles were elicited in 13 patients with syringomyelia. Seven had an associated Chiari type I anomaly. Diagnosis was confirmed by MRI. In 5 cases, SEPs and MEPs were performed before and after surgical treatment. Prolonged central motor conduction times or absent motor responses in upper or lower limbs were found in most patients. The greatest number of abnormalities was disclosed by measurement of CMCT followed by SEPs after tibial nerve stimulation. Two of 5 cases undergoing surgery improved clinically and showed reduction in CMCT after surgical treatment. Our study shows that MEPs were useful in the evaluation of neurophysiological status in syringomyelia patients, helping to estimate anterolateral spinal cord function.[1]
