Feldstein Speaks about Chiari Malformations at CNS Meeting

Dr. Neil Feldstein from the Pediatric Neurosurgery Center recently spoke at the Annual Meeting of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons.  He was part of a panel of presenters on Surgical Management of Chiari and Syringomyelia.   In particular he spoke about the management of Chiari I Malformations with non-dural opening techniques.

Based on the evidence, Dr. Feldstein recommended nondural opening for all patients except those with: Rapid progression of scoliosis with underlying syrinx; Rapid progression of neurologic dysfunction; Recurrence after nondural decompression WITHOUT bone regrowth; or for those likely to require posterior occipital-cervical fusion.
