Abstract

Chiari malformations (types I-IV) comprise a spectrum of abnormalities of the craniocervical junction including the brainstem, cerebellum, cervical spine and spinal cord, clivus, and subocciput. Formerly referred to as the Arnold-Chiari malformation, the Chiari I malformation (CM-I) is the subject of this chapter. This chapter reviews the relevant pathophysiology, symptomatology, diagnosis, anatomy, operative technique, anesthetic considerations, and neuromonitoring principles of the Chiari I malformation operation. Finally, we provide case illustrations illuminating the challenges of an operation for Chiari I malformation.
