Intradural Mechanisms Underlying Chiari Malformation Type I and Syringomyelia in Children and Adults
2018 CSF Research Colloquium: New Chiari Malformation & Syringomyelia Studies
HYATT REGENCY - HOUSTON, TX - OCTOBER 6, 2018
Each year, CSF hosts an annual colloquium to improve the academic research space associated with the study of Chiari malformation
and related disorders. Experts are able to present their research and engage in meaningful discussions with others who look at these problems with a critical eye. All the presentations were based on recently published studies as of mid-2018.
Dr. Brian Dlouhy
, from the University of Iowa
, describes the hundreds of Chiari
patients he sees at the University of Iowa
and the methods by which he treats the disorder surgically.
He also proposes new ways that try to explain how Chiari malformation and syringomyelia
occur in these patients, and how different treatment options may or may not be more effective.(2018)
