updated syringomyelia info sheet & new treatment diagram
An updated version of the "Syringomyelia Made Simple" general information document is now available on the SM Infosite, at http://sm.cavaliertalk.com/infosheet.htm, released by Dr Clare Rusbridge on September 8 2005 (the previous version was released in May 2005).
She has also created a new treatment diagram with recommendations for treating SM, which is appended to the information document webpage above. Both documents can be downloaded as pdf files from the InfoSite (with Dr Rusbridge's permission) and then can be printed out or viewed on a home computer. The diagram should be especially helpful for people with SM-affected cavaliers or vets or neurologists treating dogs with this condition as it lays out the medical and surgical options in an easy-to-understand format, and indicates at which point either should be considered.
