SURGICAL VIDEO OF EXTRADURALE SECTION OF FILUM TERMINALE

The duration of surgery with minimally invasive microsurgical technique (permitted use of the operating microscope), under local anesthesia, is on average about 20 minutes. The tip of a finger has the size of the surgical wound.

The main stages of the surgery after the incision of the skin are: 
- Dissection of the subcutaneous tissue;
- Section of the ligaments sacrococcigei rear opening of the sacral canal;
- Identification of the filum terminale that is coagulated and dissected.

The Italian Association of Chiari Child Malformation (AIMA-Child) has been a guest in our operating rooms and has filmed the minimally invasive surgical intervention that we perform. AIMA-Child, whose president Mrs. Pantalone Ielmini Simona, is the Italian association of patients affected by Chiari Malformation and related diseases, for some time now the association is no longer just a reference of pediatric patients but also of adult patients who discover the pathology. The association is non-profit, committed and committed itself to be a virtual container for patients, within which it is possible to promote and create a link between patients in order to share and deepen all the problems related to the pathology. The link to see the various surgical video is:
