Chiari malformation is a congenital disorder where the formation of the cerebellum (involving the brain stem, cervical spinal nerves in the upper part, cerebellum) causes the brain tissue to bulge and descend into the spinal canal.
Symptoms caused by this disorder depend on the type that occurs. Such as :
Headaches that get worse after coughing Speech disorders Dizziness, balance disorders Neck pain Difficulty swallowing Weakened vocal cords Treatment performed on Chairi malformation is based on the severity and symptoms caused. In patients with serious symptoms doctors will usually provide treatment through surgery with the aim of stopping the development of Chairi Malformation and it is hoped that the appearance of more severe symptoms can be prevented.
Doing this surgery can help relieve symptoms unless the patient has suffered nerve tissue damage caused by this disorder.
It is very important that you exercise routine control of the doctor who treats you with the aim that complications that can arise can be prevented, and the doctor can monitor the success rate of surgery.
