Cerebrospinal fluid flow
This chapter concerns the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the subarachnoid space that surrounds the spinal cord. Particular attention is given to abnormal flow and pressure resulting from the Chiari I malformation and its often associated condition syringomyelia. The chapter builds on the software tools described in Chapter 21, and we will compare the Chorin, IPCS and G2 methods. In this chapter, we will also describe how to create meshes with Gmsh.
