  • Cerebrospinal fluid leakage after elective disc surgery
    • Authors: Helena Brisby; A. Baranto
      Pages: 162 - 165
      Abstract: Abstract For patients undergoing elective disc herniation surgery the risk to experience a dural tear is somewhere around 1% both for the cervical and the thoracic regions and probably slightly higher for the lumbar region. In most cases a dural tear is diagnosed and taken care of peroperatively. When a leakage of cerebrospinal fluid is suspected postoperatively a combination of the patient’s history and imaging investigations/laboratory tests usually gives the diagnosis and it is mostly treated by closure in a new surgical procedure or by a subdural lumbar drainage. There is conflicting data on the long-term effect of a dural tear in relation to disc herniation surgery. This review exemplifies, describes and discusses how to diagnose, treat a dural tear and what the results are when dealing with it during or after disc herniation surgery.

  • Chronic Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) leak
    • Authors: E. M. Massicotte; K. J. George
      Pages: 166 - 172
      Abstract: Abstract Chronic CSF leak is a complication of spinal surgery. Multiple terms are used in the context of abnormal flow of CSF at the spinal level and clarification is needed. Differences between durotomy, duro-cutaneous fistula and pseudo-meningocele are important and must therefore be better appreciated. Clinical significance can be found in the incidence of this problem which can plague patients and frustrate clinicians. By providing a comprehensive review of the pathophysiology, a logical treatment algorithm can be suggested for assisting treating physicians.

  • Dural repair after extensive tumour surgery
    • Authors: D. Choi
      Pages: 173 - 177
      Abstract: Abstract Surgery for spine tumours can be challenging, and due to the increased complexity of surgery, the dura may be transgressed either for purposeful resection of tumour margins or by inadvertent breach whilst removing extradural tumour. If leakage of CSF occurs, this may affect the patient’s quality of life, at a time when maintaining function and good outcome is paramount. Surgical planning should aim to minimise the risk of CSF leakage, but if dural breach does occur, the defect should be repaired by using sutures, dural patch techniques and application of tissue adhesives. We outline and illustrate the methods of dural closure that can be used to prevent leakage of CSF during surgery for spine tumours.

  • Management of acute intraoperative cerebrospinal fluid leaks
    • Authors: Bart Depreitere; J. van Loon; J. Goffin
      Pages: 178 - 182
      Abstract: Abstract Incidental durotomy in spinal surgery has been reported with incidences varying between 1 and over 16%, depending on the type of surgery and the region of the spine. When a dural tear occurs, immediate and meticulous repair is advised in order to minimize the risk of complications secondary to persistent leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). These complications include intracranial hypotension, pseudomeningocele formation and the development of a CSF fistula with secondary wound infection and meningitis. Most dural tears are caused during biting actions by Kerrison rongeurs, and dural adhesions, dural redundancy and thinned dura are known risk factors. Accurate visualization and thorough preparation of the surgical field are key steps in dural tear repair. Those tears that are amenable to it should be carefully sutured. Large defects may require a patch of dural substitute to be sewed in. Autologous fat has proven to be useful as onlay or plugin graft. The use of fibrin glue has become a widespread practice and its effectiveness as an adjunct to primary suturing and graft constructions has been well demonstrated. Hydrogel sealants and collagen matrix onlay grafts have become available to the surgeon as additional tools in dural tear repair. However, primary suturing — if possible — is still considered to be the most effective way of reducing the chance of persistent CSF leakage. Tight closure of the fascial layer is imperative. After lumbar durotomy repair, bed rest is advised. Postoperative lumbar or ventricular CSF drainage can also help as an additional protective measure. While numerous measures and tools are available, the key message is that the surgeon confronted with a dural tear should take his time and apply all intraoperative and postoperative means required to secure watertight closure.

    • Authors: John C. Styliaras; R. Dalyai; H. Amgad; A. Sharan; J. Harrop
      Pages: 183 - 187
      Abstract: Abstract Penetrating Spinal Cord Injuries are often complicated by Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) leaks, which can be diagnosed either at initial presentation, or present themselves in a delayed fashion. Symptoms are usually non-specific and include positional headaches, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and may even include hypotension, cranial nerve palsies, and in severe cases, meningitis. Imaging to detect CSF leaks include: plain radiographs, CT and MRI, CT-myelogram, radionuclide cisternograms, MRI with intrathecal gadolinium. Initial treatment of CSF leaks is conservative, including bedrest, hydration/overhydration, and medications such as caffeine and theophylline. Although overall treatment protocols are controversial, there seems to be a consensus that if a CSF leak persists for over 96 hours, it should be surgically treated, as it would inevitably increase the risks of pseudomeningocele formation and meningitis. Surgical options include a blood/fibrin patch, the placement of a lumbar drain, and ultimately surgical exploration and primary closure of the dural defect.

      Pages: 188 - 193
      Abstract: Abstract Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage is a common complication following spinal surgery. Early detection and proactive treatment are beneficial for preventing the sequelae of prolonged or persistent CSF drainage. This report reviews the current methods for the detection of occult CSF leakage and treatment options in cases of iatrogenic dural violations during spinal surgery.

      Abstract: Study design Retrospective study. Objectives To evaluate progression of various types of congenital scoliosis (CS) with rib anomalies (RA) during the various stages of the growth period, and to assess severity of progression in order to make a strategic planning of expansion thoracoplasty. Summary of background data VEPTR is approved for the treatment of patients with TIS in more than 30 countries. However, there is no consensus on the surgical indications, or the age or time when VEPTR surgery should be performed. Furthermore, there is no study related to natural history of congenital scoliosis with rib anomalies except two reports that are not sufficient to indicate risk factors of progression during the growth period. Methods Based on a survey of CS and RA via questionnaires, 70 patients (32 males and 38 females with an average age of 2.6 years at the first visit.) matched the inclusion criteria: CS with RA, no procedures that could influence natural history during follow-up periods, repeated plain X-ray check-ups with at least two years interval during growth periods. Average follow-up (F/U) time was 5.4 years (2–14). Plain X-ray images of 70 patients were divided into three age groups: infantile (0–5,6), juvenile (5–10,11), and adolescent (11,12-). Each X-ray image was evaluated in terms of laterality, range and type of RA, severity of scoliosis, type of CS, thoracic height ratio, SAL, and associated anomalies. Results 54 of the 70 patients had unilateral rib anomalies. Rib anomalies included rib fusion in 52, mixed type (fusion and defect) in 8, rib proximity in 6, and rib defect in 4. Vertebral anomalies included formation failure in 1, segmentation failure in 16 and mixed type in 53. The magnitude of scoliosis was 46.9° at the first visit and 65.7° at the final F/U. Scoliosis progressed at the rate of 4.6°/year in 70, 3.6°/year in bilateral RA involvement and 4.9°/year in unilateral. Scoliosis progressed with the rate of 4.6°/year in 70, 3.6°/year in bilateral RA involvement and 4.9°/year in unilateral. Scoliosis progressed most severely during infantile period with the rate of 5.0°/year, followed by adolescent of 3.8°/year and juvenile of 2.3°/year. Patients with rib defect or unilateral unsegmented bar showed higher progression rates (10.7°/year and 7.0°/year) during infantile period. According to the relationship between SAL and scoliosis, four grades in severity of progression (most severe, severe, moderate, mild) were set up with the cut-off value of 70%, 85% of SAL and 45°, 85° of scoliosis for making the strategic planning of ET. Those grades were significantly related with types and location of RA and types of vertebral anomalies. Conclusions Progression of scoliosis was analysed in 70 patients with CS & RA. Congenital scoliosis with rib anomalies progressed most rapidly during the early infantile period (7.8°/year), followed by the late infantile period (5.0°/year), and the adolescent period (3.8°/year). Progression of scoliosis in patients with CS and RA occurred in early phase of growth periods and significantly related with types and location of RA as well as type of vertebral anomalies. The results of this study surely suggest the timing of ET for the patients with CS and RA.
