Type I Chiari deformity presenting with profound sinus bradycardia: case report and literature review

, : Type I Chiari deformity presenting with profound sinus bradycardia: case report and literature review. British Journal of Neurosurgery 9(4): 543-545

Type I Chiari deformity presents with diverse symptoms and signs which can be attributed to compression of structures at the foramen magnum. Bradycardia as a result of medullary compression has not been reported previously. A patient is described with type I Chiari deformity who presented with episodic profound sinus bradycardia for which a pacemaker was inserted before the diagnosis of cerebellar ectopia was finally made. Surgical decompression proved curative.

The kinematic vorticity number (Wk) can be calculated for three-dimensional as well as two-dimensional geologic deformations. For steady-state deformations, Wk can be correlated to and analyzed in terms of finite strains. The analysis shows that a...

To determine factors that affect the efficiency of dog cloning by somatic cell nuclear transfer, the present study was performed to investigate 1) the effects of surgical history (non-operated/operated) and parity (nullipara/multipara) on the reco...
