I-Z line can be used reliably by neurosurgeons as a surface landmark to predict the position of the transverse sinus, while doing suboccipital
This study provides morphometric data on RCPma and OCI in healthy adults, and lays a foundation for functional and clinical research on the suboccipital
Preservation of labyrinthine structures while drilling the posterior wall of the internal auditory canal in surgery of vestibular schwannomas via the retrosigmoid suboccipital
On the other hand, larger haemorrhages with rapidly deteriorating neurological status result in an increased intracranial pressure with potential compression of the brainstem and hydrocephalus; hence, immediate surgery to evacuate the hematoma and to decompress the posterior fossa via expanded suboccipital
craniotomy, duraplasty, and CSF diversion procedures is of essence [3-5].
At 9 years of age, a left-sided abnormality of the abdominal skin reflex was noticed, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed an Arnold-Chiari malformation with syringomyelia, which was treated with suboccipital
muscles are responsible for the stabilization of the upper cervical segment of the vertebral column and the normal movement of the cranium relative to the atlas and the atlas relative to the odontoid vertebra.
The fatigue that TMJ patients so often complain of can be attributed, in part, to the effect of gravity on forward head posture, which causes an increase in forward tension creating a compressive force on soft tissues, apophyseal joints, and posterior surfaces of vertebral bodies with excessive lengthening of anterior neck flexors and tightening of neck extensors.30 TMJ fatigue can been seen also in cases with shorting of suboccipital
and suprahyoid muscles with subsequent elevation of the hyoid bone itself.28 Urbanowicz30 illustrated 10-points physical therapy plan for negating the postural effects of increasing vertical dimension and forward head posture.
Navigated dorsolateral suboccipital
transcondylar (NADOSTA) approach for treatment of hypoglossal schwannoma.
Surgical intervention in the form of repeated tapping through burr holes, suboccipital
decompression, lateral and third ventriculostomy (open or endoscopic), ventriculo-subarachnoid and ventriculoperitoneal shunts (VPS) may sometimes be needed  since performing shunt surgery showed beneficial effects.
Cervicogenic headaches are characterized by unilateral neck or face pain, referred from various structures such as the suboccipital
muscles, cervical ligaments and joints, and intervertebral disks [1, 2].
He was intubated and required a decompressive suboccipital
