The work presents the results of the clinical and neurophysiological examination
of 207 patients with Chiari malformation of type 1. The subjective and objective
neurological symptoms of Chiari malformation type 1 were analyzed in detail, depending
on the degree of ectopy of cerebellum tonsils according to MRI data. Neurophysiological
criteria for clinical syndromes of Chiari malformation 1 have been identified in the study
of evoked potentials (BAEP, SSEP, ENMG). The Clinical Neurophysiological Scale
(CNPHS) has been proposed for objective assessment of the degree of neurological deficit
and choice of conservative or surgical tactics.
