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:
