It was not until the late nineteenth century when reports of hindbrain herniation (Chiari malformations) began to be published. However, even earlier reports can be found in the extant literature. These include a report of hindbrain herniation in association with myelomeningocele by Tulp (1593–1674) in 1641. Cleland and Arnold would also report cases of hindbrain herniation found in patients with myelomeningoceles. Probably the first description of hindbrain herniation in the absence of… Expand
Scoliosis in patients with Chiari malformation type I
TLDR
Early detection of scoliosis on routine spinal examination and close follow-up on curve stability and progression are essential initial steps in the management of scliosis, especially in patients with CM, who may require full spine MRI to screen for associated neuro-axial anomalies. Expand
Role of Cranioplasty in Management of Chiari Malformation
TLDR
Different methods of cranioplasty for Chiari malformation by different authors, strategies behind the techniques and their results are described in brief. Expand
Chiari IV malformation: correcting an over one century long historical error
TLDR
Hans Chiari (1851–1916) gave the first detailed illustrations of what is now termed the Chiari malformations, and wrote a second paper that described the type IV malformation in two patients. Expand
Chiari 3 Malformation and Cephalocele: Perinatal Evaluation.
TLDR
A 23-year-old female patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, hypertension, and history of smoking presented at 27 weeks estimated gestational age (EGA) to the high-risk maternal fetal clinic for detailed ultrasound analysis of an occipital mass. Expand
Rachischisis totalis without acrania in a newborn male.
TLDR
This report demonstrates that survival with variable function and quality of life is possible with severe open neural tube defects and a multidisciplinary team approach including family-centered care must be used early to overcome the many ethical challenges that such patients present. Expand
Multimodal Evaluation Of Cerebrospinal Fluid (csf ) Dynamics Following Extradural Decompression For Chiari I Malformation
TLDR
An increase in the CSF spaces and improved CSF dynamics and were associated with greater resolution of clinical symptoms and including cine imaging as part of routine preand post-operative evaluation can help identify which patients are most likely to benefit from surgery, as to determine a satisfactory decompression. Expand
[Treatment of syringomyelia associated with Chiari 1 malformation].
TLDR
Progression of SM or CM1 symptoms needs surgical treatment - decompression of the posterior cranial fossa for the recovery of normal cerebrospinal fluid dynamics. Expand
Twenty-Five Diagnoses on Midline Images of the Brain: From Fetus to Child to Adult.
TLDR
Improved confidence and accuracy in the evaluation of midsagittal images will benefit physicians and patients, and the authors have presented a checklist of pertinent anatomy and pathologic entities that can build on existing search patterns. Expand
Cognitive Functioning in Chiari Malformation Type I Without Posterior Fossa Surgery
TLDR
The findings suggest the presence of a generalized cognitive deficit associated with CM-I, which makes it necessary to focus attention not only on physical consequences, but also on cognitive ones. Expand
Social Cognition in Chiari Malformation Type I: a Preliminary Characterization
TLDR
It can be suggested that patients with CM-I are impaired in their social skills related to their performance on ToM tasks, since it is similar to other cerebellar pathologies and to previous literature on the cerebellum’s role in social cognition. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that the fundamental mechanism is obstructive hydrocephalus with resulting foraminal herniation of the hindbrain with resulting Foraminal Herniation in infants with Arnold-Chiari malformation. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that posterior fossa decompression appears to benefit some patients, although a significant proportion might be expected to relapse within 2 to 3 years after operation, depending upon the presenting syndrome. Expand

TLDR
Two types of brain stem malformation are described; in one the cerebellar tonsils extended into the cervical canal without medullary deformation, while in the other there was caudal extension of the brain stem and cerebellum and prolongation of the inferior vermis into the HPV canal. Expand

TLDR
A retrospective study of 60 adult patients with Arnold-Chiari malformation revealed that certain presenting clinical syndromes seemed to have definite prognostic significance and patients who presented with paroxysmal intracranial hypertension or cerebellar dysfunction had the best prognosis.

All the intracranial manifestations of hydrocephalus in combination with spina bifida may possibly be considered as consequent upon the spinal defect alone. Expand

The Arnold–Chiari Malformation
TLDR
One possible explanation for this occurrence centers around the Arnold-Chiari malformation, which is seen with any frequency in chiropractic clinical practice, as the symptoms related to the type I Arnold-chiarimalformation do not typically present themselves until the patient is between the ages of 20-40.
