On the Horizon for Chiari Malformations in Children

  • Improved imaging: Future improvements in cine MRI and computational fluid dynamics technology may improve our understanding of the pathophysiology of Chiari I malformation, the relationship with symptoms, and how to predict the need for surgery.
  • Comparative studies of surgical technique: Multicenter trials and registries may provide comparisons of the various surgical procedures with objective outcome measures.
