Investigation of Skull-Based CSF Leak Repair: A Single Institution Comprehensive Study of 116 Cases over 10 Years.

Summary of "Investigation of Skull-Based CSF Leak Repair: A Single Institution Comprehensive Study of 116 Cases over 10 Years."

CSF leaks have been historically difficult to diagnose and treat as their etiology can widely vary. There are currently insufficient diagnostic predictors and no clinically accepted standards for their treatment. This large institutional study reports on the diagnosis, management, and outcomes of patients presenting with CSF leak over 10 years and aims to identify potential comorbidities and risk factors for primary and recurrent leaks.

Outcomes of Surgical Repair of Skull Base Defects Following Endonasal Pituitary Surgery: A Retrospective Observational Study.

Skull base defects following endonasal surgery for pituitary macroadenoma need to be addressed during the surgery to prevent serious postoperative complications like cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak. Th...

Repair of Anterior Skull Base Defect by Dual-Layer/Split-Frontal Pericranial Flap.

Normal skull base structures are destroyed either by the skull base pathology itself or during surgery that results in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak. Skull base repair is usually performed transnasal...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).

Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through a hole through the skull bone most commonly draining from the nose (CEREBROSPINAL FLUID RHINORRHEA) or the ear (CEREBROSPINAL FLUID OTORRHEA).

A condition characterized by recurring episodes of fluid leaking from capillaries into extra-vascular compartments causing hematocrit to rise precipitously. If not treated, generalized vascular leak can lead to generalized EDEMA; SHOCK; cardiovascular collapse; and MULTIPLE ORGAN FAILURE.

Neoplasms of the base of the skull specifically, differentiated from neoplasms of unspecified sites or bones of the skull (SKULL NEOPLASMS).

A skull fracture characterized by inward depression of a fragment or section of cranial bone, often compressing the underlying dura mater and brain. Depressed cranial fractures which feature open skin wounds that communicate with skull fragments are referred to as compound depressed skull fractures.
