This study aimed to investigate the therapeutic effects of craniocervical decompression with duraplasty and cerebellar tonsillectomy for the treatment of Chiari malformation-I with syringomyelia (CM I-SM). From January 2005 to December 2011, 127 patients with CM I-SM underwent craniocervical decompression with duraplasty and cerebellar tonsillectomy and the therapeutic effects of these surgeries were evaluated using Tator scores. No patient in this study died or showed disease deterioration after the surgery.
