Welcome to the Event Room for the AO Spine Webinar — Management of incidental lumbar durotomy
Moderator: S. Rajasekaran
Presenter: A. Falavigna, Y. Kawaguchi, B. Storzer, K. Wiechert, N. Taboada, M. Yung-Shun Wang, A. Parajón
Description: Evidence based medicine and randomized prospective controlled trials are the basis of clinical medicine today. While we strongly rely on this evidence, the practicing surgeon frequently encounters clinical scenarios for which solutions from such trials are not possible.
The AO Spine Clinical Expert Advice Forums aims to fill that void, by documenting experts’ advice on different everyday clinical scenarios, from diagnosis, or management decisions, to intra-op events or post-operative complications.
Incidental durotomy resulting in cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leakage, is one of the most common and often challenging complications in spine surgery. The incidence varies widely, ranging from 1% to 17%, depending on the location in the spine and type of procedure. During this webinar senior surgeons share their collective thoughts and experience on the succesful management of these accidental tears on the dura mater resulting in CSF leakage.
The event starts on June 10 at 12:00 Central European Time.
