Decompressive Surgery for Craniovertebral Foramen Magnum Stenosis with Medullary Compression in Paediatric Skeletal Dysplasia Syndromes

Cristiano Antunes, Paulo Pereira, Daniela Alves, Rui Vaz and Josue Pereira

Article Type: Case Reports and Case Series | First Published: July 23, 2021

More than 450 skeletal dysplasias have been described including Achondroplasia.
