Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to determine the clinical spectrum and natural progression of Syringomyelia (SM) and related disorders in a prospective single center study, identify digital, imaging and molecular biomarkers that can assist in diagnosis and therapy development and study the etiology and molecular mechanisms of these diseases.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Syringomyelia/Hydromyelia Diagnostic Test: high throughput sequencing and electromyography

Detailed Description:

Syringomyelia is a chronic central spinal cord injury, which is characterized by dilation of the central canal of the spinal cord. At present, the treatment of syringomyelia is mainly through surgical decompression to restore the disturbance of cerebrospinal fluid circulation. Due to the heterogeneity of the etiology of syringomyelia, almost all published studies on the clinical outcome and prognostic factors of syringomyelia are relatively limited, and most of them are retrospective. It is not clear which is the most reliable predictor of clinical outcome. Therefore, the researchers conducted this prospective cohort study to identify the occurrence, development and outcome of syringomyelia and determine the main prognostic factors through clinical scales, biomarkers and electrophysiology.

At study visits a standardized clinical examination will be performed including application of clinical rating scales. At all study visits, patients will be asked to donate biosamples; biomaterial collection is optional and participants can elect to participate in sampling of blood, urine, CSF, and/or a muscle biopsy.

Optionally, additional examinations may be performed including imaging, neurophysiological examination, analysis of patient or observer reported outcomes and analysis to characterize molecular biomarkers.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of the spinal cord function [ Time Frame: 1 day before operation and 3 days, 3 months, 12 months postoperation ]
    American Spinal Injury Association(ASIA) Score for evaluating the spinal cord function


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. molecular profiling results [ Time Frame: 1 day before operation and 3 days, 3 months postoperation ]
    Change From Baseline in molecular at postoperation

  2. Electrophysiology results [ Time Frame: 1 day before operation and 3 days, 3 months postoperation ]
    included:electromyography and evoked potential; Change From Baseline in Electrophysiology at postoperation

  3. the rates of syrinx reduction [ Time Frame: 3 days, 3 months postoperation ]
    defined as a reduction of the syrinx diameter or length in MRI

  4. Chicago Chiari outcome scale (CCOS) [ Time Frame: 3 days, 3 months, 12 months postoperation ]
    Pain symptoms,Nonpain symptoms,Functionality,Complications, 4-16, higher scores mean a better outcome.

  5. Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 1 day before operation and 3 days, 3 months, 12 months postoperation ]
    degree of the pain, 1-10, higher scores mean a worse outcome

  6. Klekamp and Sammi syringomyelia scale [ Time Frame: 1 day before operation and 3 days, 3 months, 12 months postoperation ]
    for evaluating the spinal cord function, higher scores mean a better outcome

  7. modified Japanese Orthopaedic Association Scores (mJOA) [ Time Frame: 1 day before operation and 3 days, 3 months, 12 months postoperation ]
    Motor function, sensory, bladder function;for evaluating the spinal cord function;0-17, higher scores mean a better outcome

  8. Incidence of perioperative complications [ Time Frame: 1 week ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Blood, cerebral spinal fluid, saliva, urine, biopsy and autopsy
