Some of the very common symptoms associated with Chiari malformation
are difficulty swallowing (also called dysphagia) and, sometimes, difficulty breathing (dysapnea) or speaking. Otolaryngologist, Dr. Lucinda Halstead
, gives a great description of how the throat works, why it doesn't work quite right in patients with Chiari, and how a multidisciplinary approach after surgery can help patients feel better.
