Chiari Connection International Support/Information Group
Chiari Connection International Yahoo Support Group
Chiari Connection International (CCI) was created for those who suffer from Arnold Chiari Malformation and
related disorders. Related disorders can include: syringomyelia (SM); basilar invagination (BI); cranio-cervical
instability (CCI); intracranial and intraspinal cysts; tumors of the cerebellum, brain stem and spinal cord;
spina bifida (SB); hydrocephalus; pseudotumor cerebri (PTC); Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS); and various connective
tissue disorders. And possibly some not yet even discovered!
Chiari Malformation treatment has come a long way in the past 15 years thanks to surgeons and researchers who
have dedicated their time to discovering why symptoms can continue to be bothersome, even after an apparently
successful decompression surgery. This new understanding has led to a better quality of life for thousands who
suffer from Chiari Malformation.
The group exists to offer support and to help you more fully understand the various aspects of Chiari Malformation,
its related disorders and the treatment options available. Experts will post on the board often, answering questions
and explaining new connections.
