Epidural, Combined Spinal-Epidural, and more recently dural puncture epidural are forms of neuraxial anesthesia used to provide pain relief in laboring women . The investigators want to as...
The rationale behind the dural puncture epidural (DPE) technique lies in the fact that a dural perforation with a spinal needle purportedly creates a conduit for accelerated translocation ...
The study involves assessment of hearing and visual complications along with headache after accidental dural puncture in patients receiving epidurals. Hearing loss will be assessed by clin...
he study is a telephone questionnaire. The study will include 400 women, 100 in each group. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prevalence of chronic and chronic back pain following PDPH accide...
Neuraxial analgesia (most commonly continuous epidural or combined spinal epidural) is the most effective modality available for pain relief during labor. Accidental dural puncture (ADP) w...
This systematic review aimed to summarize the evidence derived from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing dural puncture epidural analgesia (DPEA) and conventional lumbar epidural analgesia (L...
Neuraxial analgesia techniques are not limited to just standard epidural and CSE blocks. A novel approach called dural puncture epidural (DPE) which is a modification of CSE in terms of practice has...
Dural puncture, paraesthesia and vascular puncture are the most common complications of epidural catheter insertion. Their association with variation in midline needle insertion depth is unknown.
Spine surgery may be associated with severe acute postoperative pain. Compared with systemic analgesia alone, epidural analgesia may offer better pain control. However, epidural analgesia has sometime...
In certain hospitals, epidural analgesia is restricted to critical care beds. Due to critical care bed strain, it is likely that many patients are unable to avail of epidural analgesia. The aims of th...
The injection of autologous blood into the epidural space either as a prophylactic treatment immediately following an epidural puncture or for treatment of headache as a result of an epidural puncture.
The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.
Circumscribed collections of suppurative material occurring in the spinal or intracranial EPIDURAL SPACE. The majority of epidural abscesses occur in the spinal canal and are associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a vertebral body; ANALGESIA, EPIDURAL; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include local and radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, URINARY INCONTINENCE, and FECAL INCONTINENCE. Cranial epidural abscesses are usually associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a cranial bone, SINUSITIS, or OTITIS MEDIA. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p710 and pp1240-1; J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1998 Aug;65(2):209-12)
A rare epidural hematoma in the spinal epidural space, usually due to a vascular malformation (CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM VASCULAR MALFORMATIONS) or TRAUMA. Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma is a neurologic emergency due to a rapidly evolving compressive MYELOPATHY.
A secondary headache disorder attributed to low CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure caused by SPINAL PUNCTURE, usually after dural or lumbar puncture.
