Arnold Chiari Type Ii Malformation
Sometimes surgery: Chiari malformation type I neurological disorder where cerebellum (or more specifically the cerebellar tonsils), descends out of the skull into the spinal area, resulting in compression of parts of brain and spinal cord, and disruptsl flow of cerebrospinal fluid sxs include. Dizziness, muscle weakness, numbness, vision problems, headaches, problems of balance/ coordination. If severe maybe surgery
Depends.: Chiari ii malformation (cm-ii), also known as arnold-chiari malformation, is characterized by downward displacement of the cerebellar vermis and tonsils, a brainstem malformation with beaked midbrain on neuroimaging, and a spinal myelomeningocele. The prognosis depends on syndromic or not nature of the defect and quality of surgical repair. Meningitis is detrimental. Shorter life-span anticipated.
I have arnold chiari malformation type 2 with syrinx. I recently had re-exploration durap. What are the possible side effects from that?
Recurrence: Hopefully everything works out for you. But if there is a problem with sealing of the patch leaks and swelling can develop. This fluid can cause compression of the brain stem. You should talk to your surgeon.
I have arnold chiari malformation type 1. I recently had corrective surgery. What are the possible side effects from that?
No: The more accepted term is chiari malformation as arnold-chiari is an older term. This type of malformation is not a neural tube defect, but rather an abnormal migration of the cerebellar tonsils below the level of the foramen magnum (chiari type 1). This defect is attributed to a congenitally small posterior fossa, thus allowing the cerebellar tonsils to migrate downward.
I am a female who was born with arnold chiari malfomation type i. Other than this I have been healthy my whole life but I have never been able to conceive. Is there a link between AC and infertility?
There: There is no relation that I can find in the literature with arnold chiari and infertility. Hopefully are you are seeing an infertility specialist who has been helping you. I wish you the best.
Chiary II.: Chiari ii malformation (cm-ii), also known as arnold-chiari malformation, is a fetal condition characterized by downward displacement of the cerebellar vermis and tonsils, a brainstem malformation with beaked midbrain on neuroimaging, and a spinal myelomeningocele (open spina bifida).See 1 more doctor answer
Result of ONTD.: Chiari ii malformation (cm-ii), also known as arnold-chiari malformation, is a fetal condition characterized by downward displacement of the cerebellar vermis and tonsils, a brainstem malformation with beaked midbrain on neuroimaging, and a spinal myelomeningocele (open spina bifida). The spinal defect is the etiology of the chiari ii malformation of the cerebellum and brainstem.
No one knows: Chiari described malformations of the cerebellum. Arnold added the defects in the brain associated with spina bifida. This became known as chiari type 2 or arnold chiari. There is kinking of the medulla and fourth ventricle, obstruction of the outlet of the fourth ventricle, peaking of brainstem, fusion of thalamus, as well as hydrocephalus and incomplete closure of spinal cord.
Head/ Cervical MRI: Chiari malformation is best diagnosed with a head MRI without contrast to assess for the abnormal tonsil position and determine whether hydrocephalus, or water on the brain, is present also. A cervical MRI without contrast can assess for a problem called a syrinx, or a fluid cavity in the center of the spinal cord. A lumbar MRI without contrast can also exclude a tethered cord causing numb legs.
Brain malformation: Briana, a chiari malformation is a downward congenital (from birth) displacement of the lowermost part of the a part of the brain (the cerebellum) through the opening in the base of the skull. Several types with no symptoms to multiple symptoms such as neck pain, headaches, dizziness, loss of balance, numbness of limbs. May be associated with other structural changes in the spinal cord or brain.See 1 more doctor answer
Arnold-Chiari: There are acquired Chiari malformations but these are mostly due to a device placed in the lower back. Most cases are congenital meaning they are due to a malformation at the base of the skull that has been present since birth.See 1 more doctor answer
Chiary II.: Chiari ii malformation (cm-ii), also known as arnold-chiari malformation, is a fetal condition characterized by downward displacement of the cerebellar vermis and tonsils, a brainstem malformation with beaked midbrain, and a spinal myelomeningocele (open spina bifida). Symptoms: lower extremity paresis, hydrocephalus, bowel/bladder control impairement, inability to indipendently ambulate.
If I have a arnold chiari malformation, what are the chances that my son will have these problems too?
Low: Chiari malformation can be isolated, occur secondary to spina bifida, or be part of many different patterns of birth defects (syndromes). If isolated (no other birth defects, medical issues), then it exhibits multifactorial determination in most cases, deriving from multiple genes and in utero environmental factors. This implies a 2-3% risk for each of your children to have chiari.See 1 more doctor answer
Chiari surgery: Surgery for a chari malformation is rather straight forward - a "botched" surgery is rare, in some rare cases further surgery might be indicated if the symptoms are not resolved - this assumes there were no complications during the procedure.
