For over two decades, clinicians have recognized that despite the excellent execution of Chiari surgery, that there is a subgroup of patients that failed to achieve the long term outcomes expected. It has been proposed that Chiari malformations (Chiari 0, Chiari Type 1, Chiari 1.5 malformations) often occur in the setting of craniocervical instability, ventral brainstem compression and other pathological conditions of the craniocervical junction, which result from ligament laxity due to underlying conditions of connective tissue disorders.
This year, the Gala has the goal of raising $500,000 to fund a multicentered, prospective, randomized trial to study efficacy of stabilization of the craniocervical junction after Chiari decompression, in the population of patients with hereditary connective tissue disorders. This major undertaking, the first in the neuroscience world, will effect not only the lives of thousands of patients, but also illuminate the mechanisms by which subtle chronic injury to the brainstem alters neurological behavior.
