Chiari malformations are structural defects in the base of the cerebellum and skull. Generally, when a part of the cerebellum, which is known as cerebellar tonsils, is located under the foramen magnum, it is known as a Chiari malformation.
Chiari malformation is categorised into four types: Type I Chiari malformation is asymptomatic. No indication is observed for "prophylactic" surgery in type I Chiari malformation. If the Chiari malformation is symptomatic, Chiari malformation treatment is usually recommended. Type II Chiari malformation treatment can be prescribed if the patient is symptomatic.
Type III Chiari malformation treatment market is very unusual as a part of the brain stem and the cerebellum stick out through an abnormal opening from the back of the skull.
Type IV Chiari malformation treatment market involves an underdeveloped or incomplete cerebellum. Some parts of the cerebellum are missing and portions of the spinal cord and the skull are likely to be visible.
Chiari malformation treatment has two approaches: traditional surgery, which includes cervical laminectomies and Chiari decompression surgery. It is a minimally invasive procedure during which the surgeon makes small incisions and there is minimal desruption of the surrounding tissues of the patient. Office of Rare Diseases, National Institutes of Health has listed Chiari malformation as a rare disease. The estimated prevalence of Type I Chiari malformation in the United States is less than one percent, with a slight variance in females.
