Chiari Malformation & Chiari 1.5: An Update
ADVOCATE LUTHERAN GENERAL HOSPITAL - PARK RIDGE, IL - NOVEMBER 23, 2019
There are different types of Chiari malformation
, the most common of which is Chiari I. There are also Chiari malformations 0, 2, and 3-- but it is important to understand that these are all very different disorders, not a grading scale of severity. Dr. Kellogg
goes into great detail describing the differences between each type of Chiari.
In this talk, however, Dr. Kellogg also goes more in detail about an increasingly recognized type of Chiari: Chiari 1.5, also sometimes called "complex Chiari". This type can be thought of as a middle-ground between Chiari 1 and Chiari 2. Usually, patients with Chiari 1.5 have very specific symptoms and radiology findings on their MRI.
This lecture is a must-watch to learn the basics of Chiari malformations, and to learn a little bit about some current controversies including surgical techniques and even participation in sports!
