Since the spinal canal becomes narrow and results in cerebrospinal fluid reflux in such a condition, the tip of the catheter was inserted in the cerebellomedullary cistern. Intrathecal pump was implanted in the cisterna magna under DSA without any complications in the First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine (Figure 1).
Abstract: Myelography was evaluated in 12 domestic pigeons (Columba livia) by injecting an iodinated contrast medium (iohexol) at the atlanto-occipital space into the cerebellomedullary cistern. Each pigeon was monitored after the myelography procedure for seizures, hyperthermia, and prolonged recovery from anesthesia; postmyelographic complications were not observed.
The site of injection was the atlanto-occipital space overlying the cerebellomedullary cistern (Fig 2).
