Posterior fossa decompression (PFD), with and without duraplasty, represents a valid treatment in Chiari malformation Type I (CM-I) with and without syringomyelia. Despite a large amount of series reported in literature, several controversies exist regarding the optimal surgical approach yet. In this study, we report our experience in the treatment of CM-I, with and without syringomyelia, highlighting how the application of some technical refinements could lead to a good outcome and a lesser rate of complications.

Abstract

Posterior fossa decompression (PFD), with and without duraplasty, represents a valid treatment in Chiari malformation Type I (CM-I) with and without syringomyelia. Despite a large amount of series reported in literature, several controversies exist regarding the optimal surgical approach yet. In this study, we report our experience in the treatment of CM-I, with and without syringomyelia, highlighting how the application of some technical refinements could lead to a good outcome and a lesser rate of complications.
