OBJECT Hydrocephalus is one of the commonest complications of tubercular meningitis (TBM), and its incidence is increasing with the HIV epidemic.

Deterioration of pulmonary function after surgery for congenital atlantoaxial dislocation (AAD) has been documented in a few studies. We proposed that this deterioration in AAD is much higher than what can be expected after a surgical procedure under general anesthesia or what occurs after any surgery on the cervical spine. To test this hypothesis, we recorded forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory ratio (FEV 1.0), forced expiratory flow (FEF 25%-75%) and muscle power in the extremities in 25 patients undergoing surgical correction of AAD (AAD group), 29 patients undergoing surgery for compressive cervical spine lesions (cervical spine group) and 20 patients undergoing craniotomy for an intracranial lesion (craniotomy group)...
