The Complex Chiari Malformation 

Complex Chiari

The more we learn about Chiari malformation, the more complicated diagnosis and treatments seem to become. Individual characteristics of specific sub-populations of Chiari patients can make appropriate surgical treatment difficult in cases of spinal instability and more. The videos below accurately describe what is more often being colloquially described as “Chiari 1.5”– the complex Chiari.
