CSF SEA Board member Dr. David Limbrick was awarded $2.8million dollars from the Patient-Centered Research Outcomes Initiative (PCORI) in 2015 for his study to determine whether posterior fossa decompression is more effective for patients with or without duraplasty.

Watch Dr. Limbrick explain how a randomized controlled trial (RCT) works, what his is looking to find out, and how YOU can become an official "researcher"!

Dr. Cormac Maher gives an overview of the state of #Chiari malformation knowledge. What do we know? What do we wish we knew? What will we know soon? And, importantly, how will all this knowledge help patients?

Every CSF Chapter meeting features an educational lecture from a specialist and a reception where patients, families and friends can share their stories.

Check out some of the highlights from our most recent CSF Chapter Kickoff at St. Louis Children's Hospital in St. Louis, MO!

"It is so frustrating to go to the doctor, be in support groups, and hear from others what I CAN’T DO... So today, I hope you will take a few moments to read what we CAN do."

Really refreshing take on life with #Chiari, #syringomyelia and related disorders... or #chronicillness, in general.

"Nerve pain tends to not respond as well to #Chiari #decompression as #headache. In my experience, surgery can even change the way the condition affects you... for example, I'm learning now that my patients have itch." Watch Dr. David Limbrick explain Chiari and #syringomyelia treatment in 2016.

#Chiari, #syringomyelia and related disorders have become known as "invisible disabilities," or some debilitating condition that is not easily apparent to anyone but the individual suffering from it.

Wayne Connell, Founder and President of the +InvisibleDisabilitiesAssociation, envisions a world where there is no longer anyone struggling with pain and disability that others cannot or refuse to see.
