- In 2015 the first foreign patient, 36 year old patient from Bosnia.


FROM 2010 TO TODAY, 6TH APRIL 202O, ABOUT 200 ITALIAN PATIENTS HAVE BEEN TREATED WITH MINI-INVASIVE SURGERY OF FILUM TERMINALE EXTERNUM SECTIONING.

PATIENTS IN WHICH TETHERED CORD OR OCCULT TETHERED CORD IS ASSOCIATED WITH CHIARI MALFORMATION TYPE I: MEDICAL CONSIDERATIONS

THE TETHERED CORD OR OCCULT TETHERED CORD MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH CHIARI MALFORMATION TYPE I, IT IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE TO ESTABLISH, IN A CLEAR WAY, THE BORDER BETWEEN THE SYMPTOMS OF ONE AND OF THE OTHER PATHOLOGY.

THE SYMPTOMS THAT USUALLY ASSOCIATE WITH THE TETHERED CORD OR OCCULT TETHERED CORD ARE LUMBAR OR SACRAL PAIN, IN THE LOWER LIMBS MAY HAVE PAIN, PARESTHESIA AND EASY TIRABILITY, DISORDERS IN URINARY AND FECAL SPHINCTERS MAY BE PRESENT.

FILUM TERMINALE EXTERNUM SECTIONING WITH MINI-INVASIVE TECHNIQUE IN LOCAL ANESTHESIA IS NOT THE SURGICAL TREATMENT OF CHIARI MALFORMATION TYPE I.

THE TREATMENT OF CHIARI MALFORMATION TYPE I IS CRANIAL DECOMPRESSION IN POSTERIOR FOSSA, WITH THE DIFFERENT TECHNICAL VARIANTS. 

HOWEVER, IN MY EXPERIENCE, IN PATIENTS WITH TETHERED CORD OR OCCULT TETHERED CORD EVEN SOME DISORDERS TYPICALLY CONNECTED TO THE CHIARI MALFORMATION TYPE I CAN IMPROVE AFTER THE FILUM TERMINALE EXTERNUM SECTIONING.

FRENCH PATIENT SUBJECT TO SURGICAL TREATMENT OF FILUM TERMINALE EXTERNUM SECTIONING IN LOCAL ANESTHESIA AFTER HAVING BEEN SUBMITTED TO LUMBAR MRI IN A PRONE POSITION IN ITALY.
REVIEW (IN ITALIAN) MRS LEONIE C. on the Qsalute website: "A first-rate team, very helpful, that puts you at ease, and very professional. 

Hygiene at the top. 

They changed my life. 

Already the day after the intervention, the tingling in the hands and feet was gone. 

For the rest, it will only take time. 

Thanks to the staff and especially to Dr. Veronesi Vanni."

FRENCH PATIENT SUBJECT TO SURGICAL TREATMENT OF FILUM TERMINALE EXTERNUM SECTIONING IN LOCAL ANESTHESIA AFTER HAVING BEEN SUBMITTED TO LUMBAR MRI IN THE PRONE POSITION.
REVIEW (IN ITALIAN) MRS. YANNIK D. on the Qsalute site:
"I met Dr. Veronesi after a wander between doctors and years of suffering, so much so that I quit my job. I am French and the neurologists I was able to "visit" in France gave me little listening time and poor solutions for my generalized pain and fatigue. I have a form of syringomyelia. The only thing are the drugs, which for me are more destined to fatten the pharmaceutical companies without solving my problem ... My meeting with Mr Veronesi went beyond my expectations. Mr Veronesi is a person who puts within the reach of his patients, who took the trouble to interpret all the magnetic resonances brought from France, to explain them to me (which no neurologist had done in France) and, after a long evaluation, offered me the SFT (TERMINAL FILUM SECTION) intervention as a solution.
I was operated on 29 October at the Faenza hospital by Dr. Vanni Veronesi. The effect was immediate! I had the opportunity to meet a beautiful person, humble, friendly and human, I cannot thank him enough for allowing me to resume a normal life ... I also thank all the staff of the public hospital in Faenza that I was able to meet, all very competent and very friendly.
This testimony, for all those looking for a neurosurgeon as they no longer exist !! Thanks Mr. Veronesi, you are a very beautiful person and you have brought the sun back to my life! "

REVIEW, IN ITALIAN, MR. GAETAN G. on the Qsalute website:
"I was operated by Dr. Vanni Veronesi, by far the best doctor I have met in my life.
Maximum capacity and availability never seen before. I remember the first time I met him, he told me he was trying to treat the patient as if he were his brother.
And I confirm that I felt that it was so.
Thank you dear doctor. "

Review by Mr. A.D. on Qsalute website

Italy should be proud

After years of research for the cause of my problems, there was a suspicion that I was suffering from a rare condition called occult tethered cord syndrome. Doctors in my country know very little about this condition, so we needed help getting the right diagnosis. 

On the internet I found an e-mail address of Veronesi M.D. and asked him if he also treated international patients. A few days later, the answer was in my inbox: of course I treat them, what's your problem, what needs to be solved? First, he helped me get a correct diagnosis, he sent me a document describing a way to do a prone MRI, thus allowing me to do the lumbar MRI in a prone position at the hospital in my country. He was under no obligation to do so, I live in another country. I immediately understood that he is an extraordinary man. Then I went to the first checkup in Italy, and the surgery was scheduled for about a year later. The intervention is quick and painless and the hospital stay is short. My recovery was incredible, my condition improved very quickly after the surgery: there was no back pain, the pain in the legs was gone, the urological condition started to improve and I was sleeping much better than before of surgery. One year after the surgery my condition improved further, only minor urological problems are still present. It is important to note that I am 38 years old, so I am a case of adult occult tethered cord syndrome, neglected for years because the doctors in my country did not know how to help me. I didn't know what to expect, instead the surgery was effective and successful. Now my life is easier, my problems are minor after the surgery. 

This is the professionalism of Veronesi M.D., he is truly remarkable, honest man, not easy to find these days. Thanks also to Sacco M.D. and all the hospital staff. Italy should be proud of you!
