BACKGROUND: The treatment options for patients with Chiarimalformation type 1 (CM1) and Chiarimalformation type 1.5 (CM1.5) have not yet been standardized. In these malformations, the main factors include obstruction at the level of the foramen magnum and dural and ligamentous thickening. Here we present our outcomes of surgery and decompression using a minimally invasive surgery (MIS) technique.
