The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of FS VH S/D 500 s-apr for use as an adjunct to sutured dural repair in cranial surgery.
Patients with persistent symptoms of cerebrospinal-fluid leakage (positional headache, photophobia, nausea and vomiting, clear drainage from the wound, fluctuant subcutaneous wound) after ...
Pseudotumor cerebri, also called idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), is characterized by elevated intracranial pressure, headache, and if severe, vision loss. IIH is difficult to t...
Cerebrospinal fluid volume is an important factor that influences peak block height and regression of sensory and motor blockade. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of dural s...
The objective of the study is to clinically assess the safety and performance of the Dura Sealant Patch as a means of reducing intra- as well as post-operative CSF leakage in patients unde...
The meninges are involved in various pathologies and are often directly or indirectly severed during surgical procedures, especially the dura mater. This can pose a real challenge for the surgeon, as ...
To describe the technique and discuss the advantages and outcomes of the trans-mastoid approach (TMA) for temporal bone cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak.
To compare surgical outcomes between 2 techniques for cribriform cerebrospinal fluid leak (CSF) repair with middle turbinate preservation (MTP) vs middle turbinate resection (MTR). A secondary outcome...
To investigate the outcomes of simultaneous cochlear implantation and repair of a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak in two patients with inner ear malformations following meningitis.
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak is a frustrating complication of skull base surgery. Published methodologies using national surgical databases to assess CSF leak have not accounted for variability betw...
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 secondary headache disorder attributed to low CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure caused by SPINAL PUNCTURE, usually after dural or lumbar puncture.
Tubes inserted to create communication between a cerebral ventricle and the internal jugular vein. Their emplacement permits draining of cerebrospinal fluid for relief of hydrocephalus or other condition leading to fluid accumulation in the ventricles.
Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through the nose. Common etiologies include trauma, neoplasms, and prior surgery, although the condition may occur spontaneously. (Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1997 Apr;116(4):442-9)
Proteins in the cerebrospinal fluid, normally albumin and globulin present in the ratio of 8 to 1. Increases in protein levels are of diagnostic value in neurological diseases. (Brain and Bannister's Clinical Neurology, 7th ed, p221)
