Chiari Surgical Success Scale. It’s hard to believe, but this year, the CSSS study is turning three years old at our two longest enrolling sites! We should have some initial results on the first few people enrolled in this study at this time next year.
Currently, there are 14 sites enrolling and 146 incredible patients who have already contributed their valuable information to this work. Thank you to everyone involved in this project– it is truly a labor of love and a testament to how hard the community is willing to work and come together to make a difference– whether those hard working people are patients themselves, their parents, dedicated clinicians or research staffers, there is so much going into this work.
We are hopeful that the CSSS tool will be very useful for so many people in the future… It’s the closest thing we will have to “precision medicine” in Chiari for many years! Learn more about the study here.
