I missed the initial request for information on Syringomyelia, but saw the
reply by Sarah Santitoro.  My colleagues and I are studying 
syringomyelia, particularly post-traumatic syringomyelia.  Magnetic 
resonance imaging (MRI) is very sensitive for diagnosing syringomyelia, 
but it is insensitive for monitoring serial change.  We are exploring 
alternative methods for monitoring syringomyelia.  We are concerned that 
shunting fails in some patients over a period of years, though they may 
experience initial benefit.  I would be interested in communicating with 
those who have syringomyelia and those who are researching this illness.
