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.

This lecture was given at the May 10, 2018 Charleston CSF Chapter meeting held at the Medical University of South Carolina. (2018)
