Neurosurgery. 1981 Aug;9(2):185-9. doi: 10.1227/00006123-198108000-00016.


A case of cerebellar hemorrhage complicating the postoperative course of a patient who had undergone a cervical laminectomy in the sitting position is presented. The drop in cerebrospinal fluid pressure accompanying the procedure is thought to have had some role in the development of the hemorrhage.
