There's nothing simple about any part of the human body. The results of this study indicate that dural tear subsequent to middle third facial fractures is a different proposition than dural tear subsequent to direct skull trauma. MRI at the last follow-up showed no dural stenosis or CSF cyst formation. Management and results after a two-year-minimum follow-up of eighty-eight patients. Management can be divided into conservative or active in the form of EBP. Dural sac tears are nothing to mess around with. For example, bone spurs, cysts, and narrowing of the spinal canal are typical effects seen in the older adult's spine. An analysis by Stolke et al 39 of 412 primary and 69 reoperations for herniated disc revealed a dural tear prevalence of 1.8% of microdiscectomies, 5.3% of macrodiscectomies, and 17.4% of reoperations. Thank you for your time. 3,10 Serious complications such as intracranial hypotension, neurological deficit and infection occurred after dural tear. Patients are fully informed up front (before surgery) about the risk of a dural tear and the fact that if a dural tear occurs, a second surgery to repair the tear may be needed.In this article, spinal surgeons review the complex anatomy of the dura mater and cerebrospinal fluid, point out risk factors (who is most likely to have a tear of this type), and guide surgeons through the intricate process of performing a dural repair.Three intricate drawings are provided to show the various layers of tissue and fluid that surround the brain and the spinal cord. Figure 1 Approximately 1 cm dural tear. Evaluation and management of small dural tears in primary lumbar spinal decompression and discectomy surgery. For the lumbar spine, lying flat is best. Wood GW. The Learning Process of Endoscopic Spinal Surgery for Degenerative Cervical and Lumbar Disorders Using the EasyGO! 2020 Jun;6(2):495-501. doi: 10.21037/jss.2020.01.06. 7 However, little has been reported regarding the incidence or management of dural tears following cervical surgery. The surgeon is advised to keep the area well-lit (e.g., use a head lamp and an operating microscope) and dry (e.g., stop any bleeding or leakage of cerebrospinal fluid). The incidence of dural tears during lumbar spine surgery strongly varies depending on the indication, the type of surgical procedure, and the cohorts reviewed, ranging from 1 to 17%. 2020 Jul;17(Suppl 1):S99-S109. … World Neurosurg. Muscle grafts and fibrin glue (3 mL) were used to seal the dural defect plus partial drainage of the cyst. Use of an endoscope for spinal intradural pathology. Younger female patients should be carefully treated when DT occurs. Between the vertebra (spinal bone) and dura is the epidural space. If such an event occurs, then the plan of care shifts toward management of the problem.So, who's at greatest risk for this complication? Add a graft if necessary or use a fat plug to make a water tight seal around the hole and/or around the sutures.As you might expect, smaller tears (pinhole size) are easier to manage. 9. Small, asymptomatic subdural hematomas can be managed conservatively with serial CT scans of the head to assess for any interval change in hemorrhage size. The dural tear rate, the technique of dural closure, postoperative time of bed rest, postoperative symptoms related to cerebrospinal fluid fistula, and revision surgery were assessed. RESULTS: The overall rate of dural tears in endoscopic spinal surgery was 2.7%, with a range from 0% to 8.6%. Dural tears after lumbar spine surgery are well documented and are among the most common complications, occurring in ~14% of all lumbar spine cases. Evaluation and treatment of dural tears in lumbar spine surgery: a review. A dural tear that occurs during an operation on the lumbar spine can be treated successfully with primary repair followed by bed rest. Rehydration and antibiotic treat-ment were given.During the 11-month follow up period, the patient had no evidence of nerve injury. In the lumbar spine (low back), it's more likely to be ossification of the ligamentum flavum (another supportive spinal ligament).Another risk factor is previous spinal surgery. Spinal Surgeons Offer Guidelines for Prevention and Management of Dural Tears. CONCLUSIONS:An autologous muscle or fat graft in combination with fibrin glue or a fibrin-sealed collagen sponge seems to be a good and safe method for the management of dural tear in lumbar endoscopic spine surgery. The authors offer several guiding principles for dural tear repairs. An autologous muscle or fat graft in combination with fibrin glue or a fibrin-sealed collagen sponge seems to be a good and safe method for the management of dural tear in … Prognostic impact of intra- and postoperative management of dural tear on postoperative complications in primary degenerative lumbar diseases. The dural tear rate, the technique of dural closure, postoperative time of bed rest, postoperative symptoms related to cerebrospinal fluid fistula, and revision surgery were assessed. Treatments for dural tears include bed rest, draining, and if the leaking continues, surgery. An autologous muscle or fat graft in combination with fibrin glue or a fibrin-sealed collagen sponge seems to be a good and safe method for the management of dural tear in lumbar endoscopic spine surgery. Efforts are being made to come up with alternate ways to repair the tear without using sutures.Sometimes it's not possible to repair the tear. Stitch the tear carefully through all three layers. For dural tears requiring treatment, we confirmed the tearing margin with further laminectomy and dissection. Management can be divided into conservative or active in the form of EBP.

Prognostic impact of intra- and postoperative management of dural tear on postoperative complications in primary degenerative lumbar diseases. Some authors even consider that dural injury is the commonest complication in spinal surgery. The incidence of a dural tear was much greater in cases with lumbar stenosis (3.7%) than in lumbar disc herniation (2.1%). Preoperative planning enables the surgeon to be prepared for dural repair with a choice of graft. Naturally, anyone who is having spine surgery. Epub 2019 Apr 19. Dural laceration occurring with burst fractures and associated laminar fractures. Soma K, Kato S, Oka H, Matsudaira K, Fukushima M, Oshina M, Koga H, Takano Y, Iwai H, Ganau M, Tanaka S, Inanami H, Oshima Y. Spine J. Major headache, nausea, and light sensitivity can develop after surgery.Because dural tears are common during spinal surgery, the surgeon usually makes sure the patient understands the risk and the side effects of this complication. Spinal Surgeons Offer Guidelines for Prevention and Management of Dural Tears. Stitch the tear carefully through all three layers. Management and results after a two-year-minimum follow-up of eighty-eight patients. Sequalae of inadequately repaired dural tears include post-operative wound cerebrospinal … If tears can be prevented in the first place, then dural tear surgery can be avoided completely. An autologous muscle or fat graft in combination with fibrin glue or a fibrin-sealed collagen sponge seems to be a good and safe method for the management of dural tear in lumbar endoscopic spine surgery. Other studies have shown prevalence rates of 4%8,15 and 5.3%44for various lumbar proc… Dural Tears in Percutaneous Biportal Endoscopic Spine Surgery: Anatomical Location and Management. Of the eighty-eight procedures that resulted in a dural tear, forty-five were revisions; these revisions were performed after an average of 2.2 previous operations on the lumbar spine, all of which resulted in a scar adherent to the dura. The management of long-term results of patients with dural tears from lumbar spine sur-gery. Any time surgery is done on the spine, there is a risk that the dura will get torn or damaged. Postoperative management The patient was kept in the Trendelenburg position for 5 days postoperatively. In Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Vol. If cerebrospinal fluid continues to leak, the surgeon knows the job is not finished yet.Patients are warned that even with a dural repair, the problem can come back. An MRI with and without gadolinium is performed and shown in Figure A and B. 2020 Dec;14(6):790-800. doi: 10.31616/asj.2019.0297. NIH Full endoscopic treatment of dural tears in lumbar spine surgery. If the tear isn't identified and repaired at the time of surgery, it can lead to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaking after the procedure. All rights reserved. The surgeon is advised to keep the area well-lit (e.g., use a head lamp and an operating microscope) and dry (e.g., stop any bleeding or leakage of cerebrospinal fluid). Epub 2018 Feb 21. Keywords: Your message was successfully sent. 1. Fixation of the transplantation and watertight closure were achieved by the application of fibrin sealant with gelfoam. Trying to cut through this tough ligament to get to the spine can results in a tear of the underlying dura. Post Dural Puncture Headache Management This leaflet aims to give you general information about the headache that may develop as a consequence of a dural tear during your spinal cord stimulator (SCS) implant surgery. Epub 2020 Jul 31. Furthermore, there is a debate whether dural tear requires surgical treatment or not. Lower back pain and disorders of intervertebral disc. But the surgeon does in order to make a successful repair. Optimal management with minimal discomfort and maximum counseling of the patient is essential. Management and results after a two-year-minimum follow-up of eighty-eight patients. The protective coverings around the spinal cord are equally complex. Uniportal Full Endoscopic Posterolateral Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion with Endoscopic Disc Drilling Preparation Technique for Symptomatic Foraminal Stenosis Secondary to Severe Collapsed Disc Space: A Clinical and Computer Tomographic Study with Technical Note. Special Considerations. Dural Tears in Spine Surgery. In general, the tear is noted at the time of operation when leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is noted by the surgeon. Besides the three-layer dura and cerebrospinal fluid, there are structures and layers such as the transverse sinus, tentorium cerebelli, cistern, and subarachnoid space. J Spine Surg. In one study, more than 1,300 patients who had spine surgery between 2000 and 2010 were evaluated. Galarza M, Gazzeri R, Alfaro R, de la Rosa P, Arraez C, Piqueras C. J Clin Neurosci. We suggest a number of improvements: the use of the Valsalva maneuver to test the suturing, a stand-up test for the patient, and a systematic late MRI to detect meningoceles. HHS Well, that's a matter of debate. For dural tears requiring treatment, we confirmed the tearing margin with further laminectomy and dissection. If the repair required tight suture fixation these authors recommendation placement of a drain without suction and removal at 48 hours. 7 However, little has been reported regarding the incidence or management of dural tears following cervical surgery. Management of Unintentional Dural Puncture. Dural tears secondary to operations on the lumbar spine. Asian Spine J. doi: 10.14245/ns.2040078.039. Neurospine. Closed subarachnoid drainage for management of cerebrospinal fluid leakage after an operation on the spine. 18. If that happens, watch out! The overall rate of dural tears in endoscopic spinal surgery was 2.7%, with a range from 0% to 8.6%. These are known to discomfort the patient in the post-operative period, taking attention away from an otherwise well performed surgery. Understanding spinal anatomy and assessing patients for risk factors are keys to prevention.Reference: Michael T. Espiritu, MD, et al. Dural tears are a common and well-documented complication of spine surgery with reported incidences ranging from 1.7 % [ 20 ] to as high as 17.4 % [ 19 ]. A systematic literature search was performed using the database PubMed. The postoperative treatment is not standardized. The goal is to reduce pressure against the repair site until healing has gotten a good foothold. Physical exam shows some mild erythema surrounding the incision. And the ossification mentioned can be sharp enough to erode through the dura over time.During the dural repair procedure, the surgeon will do everything possible to avoid puncturing this delicate structure. But finding the right dural substitute has been a challenge. Thanks to the invention of the electron microscope, it is possible to magnify tissues enough to see the finest detail. Primary closure via suturing remains challenging in endoscopic procedures. Conservative Management Aims to relieve symptoms while waiting for the dural tear to heal by itself, or to seal the puncture with epidural blood patch.This may be enough for mild cases of PDPH. His surgery was remarkable for a dural tear that was repaired. Epub 2017 May 20. … Methods: 2018 Apr;50:177-182. doi: 10.1016/j.jocn.2018.01.008. The greatest rate was accompanied by resecting synovial cysts. Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! Stitch the tear carefully through all three layers. Primary repair of the dura using conventional techniques such as sutures (silk or prolene) is considered gold standard. The main reason for this is that cerebrospinal fluid can leak out of the suture holes made to thread the stitches through the tissue. Abstract. What is the most appropriate next step in management? Deleterious consequences of dural leaks include dural-cutaneous fistulas that can lead to meningitis, arachnoiditis or epidural abscess, impaired wound healing, wound infection, pseudomeningocele formation, nerve root entrapment, and headache. Although the optimal timing for surgery is controversial, surgical techniques and approaches for … Bertalanffy and Eggert reviewed their complications after 450 consecutive anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion operations … Treatment of dural tears associated with spinal surgery. In: Canale ST, ed. Larger tears with more damage to the dural layers may actually require reconstruction of the dura. The dural tear rate, the technique of dural closure, postoperative time of bed rest, postoperative symptoms related to cerebrospinal fluid fistula, and revision surgery were assessed. In fact, studies show that five to 10 per cent of all patients who have a dural repair procedure will spring a leak again. Conclusions: Even what appears to be a single layer of covering around the spinal cord and brain (the dura) has three layers. The surgeon can use a xenograft (material taken from another species such as a pig) but there's a risk of disease transmission. He now presents with recurrence of his leg pain and back pain. A tear in the dura results in decompression of the thecal sac and reduction of local pressure on the epidural veins, allowing CSF to leak in to the operative site. Pp. In the former, spontaneous repair most often occurs following reduction and immobilization of the fracture, and surgical repair with its attendant complications is thereby usually not warranted. Eur Spine J. 1  The surgery for a dural tear is much like plugging a hole in a tire. Abstract. 2019 Sep;19(9):1559-1565. doi: 10.1016/j.spinee.2019.04.015. The connective tissue around this muscle along the outside of the upper thigh is a good substitute for the dura that can't be repaired.Once the repair or reconstruction has been done the patient must rest. Clin Orthop Relat Res. Presented at the annual meeting of the North American Spine Society, New York, USA October 22-25, 1997. Cervical spinal trauma is increasing according to extensive literature on the descriptive epidemiology of traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) [ 1 – 5 ]. 2017 Oct;26(10):2496-2503. doi: 10.1007/s00586-017-5105-8. It has been reported that the incidence of dural tears is much greater in endoscopic procedures. Thanks to the invention of the electron microscope, it is possible to magnify tissues enough to see the finest detail.Spinal surgeons and patients having spinal surgery are affected most by this discovery. J Bone Joint Surg Am. Takenaka S, Makino T, Sakai Y, Kashii M, Iwasaki M, Yoshikawa H, Kaito T. Bone Joint J, 101-B(9):1115-1121, 01 Sep 2019 Cited by: 0 articles | PMID: 31474138 Collagen sponges are another option but these aren't always water tight.A popular technique right now is the use of graft material taken from the patient's own tensor fascia lata. Figure 1 Approximately 1 cm dural tear. Accidental dural tears can result from acutely ruptured herniated disc fragments, penetrating spine injuries, or sharp fractured bone edges caused by spine trauma. There is disagreement regarding management of anterior and nerve root tears, pinhole-sized tears in any location of the spine, and whether patients should be admitted to hospital or should be on bed rest following a pinhole-sized dural tear. Dural tears are one of the most common complications of spinal surgery. As of March 2012, most dural tear surgeries involve sutures (stitches), but sutureless techniques are being developed as well. Outside the dura are the arachnoid, denticulate ligament, subarachnoid space, and pia mater.The average patient doesn't really need to know the ins and outs of spinal anatomy. A diagnosis of a spinal extradural arachnoid cyst was made. A durotomy, or dural tear, can occur during spinal surgery, requiring a water-tight dural closure in order to prevent a CSF leak. Even what appears to be a single layer of covering around the spinal cord and brain (the dura) has three layers. If dural tear is associated with a brain injury, wide exposure of the wound is done to examine the extent of brain damage. Dural tears and CSF leaks are not uncommonly found in spine surgery. 2018 Nov;119:479-487. doi: 10.1016/j.wneu.2018.06.206. Numerous promising strategies and therapeutic approaches are available to treat dural injuries, but there are still no uniform guidelines. Iatrogenic dural tear is a complication of spinal surgery with significant morbidity and cost to the health care system. In the presence of a dural tear, management depends on the size of the tear. Incidental durotomy is the most frequent complication during spinal surgery. Subsequent management was complicated by the persistence of a pseudomeningocele despite multiple surgical drainage procedures and a concomitant increase in retroperitoneal fluid collections. Such a tear does not appear to have any long-term deleterious effects or to increase the risk of postoperative infection, neural damage, or arachnoiditis. A dural tear occurred in 1.1% of cases of lumbar disc herniation, in 7.9% of cases with lumbar spinal stenosis, in 37.5% of cases with a synovial cyst. Rehydration and antibiotic treat-ment were given.During the 11-month follow up period, the patient had no evidence of nerve injury. Management of a Dural tear is a demanding task for surgeons. Presented by Stefan Hellinger, MD and Jin-Sung Luke Kim, MD, PhD The dura is a watertight sac of tissue that covers the spinal cord and spinal nerves. This protocol provided effective management of dural tears in lumbar surgery, with no application problems. 1998;80(12):1728–32. 2. The dural tear rate, the technique of dural closure, postoperative time of bed rest, postoperative symptoms related to cerebrospinal fluid fistula, and revision surgery were assessed. 1998; 80: 1728-32. A dural tear is a complication of spine surgery in which the thin covering over the spinal cord (called dura mater) is nicked by the surgeon’s instrument. In a series of 641 consecutive patients who underwent lumbar decompression surgery, Wang et al 45 reported 88 dural tears, a rate of 14%. Influence of incidental dural tears and their primary microendoscopic repairs on surgical outcomes in patients undergoing microendoscopic lumbar surgery. Brain Sci. 2020 Jun 15;10(6):373. doi: 10.3390/brainsci10060373. Management of durotomy in the setting of an acute infection is a challenge. Was this page helpful? System. 537-545. Dural tears occur frequently during spinal surgery; when promptly recognized and repaired, they generally cause no long-term problems. That's just around the brain. The optimal management is unclear, and therefore we aimed to survey current practices among Canadian practitioners. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. Risk Factors and Options of Management for an Incidental Dural Tear in Biportal Endoscopic Spine Surgery. Management of Unintentional Dural Puncture. Epub 2020 May 21. Guerin P, El Fegoun AB, Obeid I, Gille O, Lelong L, Luc S, et al. Dural tears are one of the most common complications of spinal surgery. Smaller needles are being used now. (2)Himchan UHS Spine and Joint Centre, Department of Neurosurgery, … An MRI with and without gadolinium is performed and shown in Figure A and B. Deleterious consequences of dural leaks include dural-cutaneous fistulas that can lead to meningitis, arachnoiditis or epidural abscess, impaired wound healing, wound infection, pseudomeningocele formation, nerve root entrapment, and headache. Postoperative cerebrospinal-fluid fistula associated with erosion of the dura. Scar tissue (adhesions and fibrosis) make it more difficult for the surgeon to see anatomic landmarks used to guide the procedure. All devitalized tissue and foreign bodies are removed by a combination of irrigation and suction. His surgery was remarkable for a dural tear that was repaired. An autologous muscle sample was harvested within the operative field and grafted at the dural defect in several layers.  |  Underlying dura is separated carefully from the overlying depressed bone fragments. The neurological sequelae following inadequate Dural repair include CSF leakage, pseudo meningocele, root herniation and CSF fistulas [3]. In particular, a condition known as ossification of the ligaments is a big risk factor.Ossification refers to tiny bits of bone infiltrating the soft tissue. Study Design:Retrospective multicenter case series study.Objective:Because cervical dural tears are rare, most surgeons have limited experience with this complication. In total, 12 studies reported specifically about the surgical treatment for dural tear in percutaneous and tubular assisted endoscopic technique. In the cervical spine (neck), ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) increases the risk of dural tears. This study elucidates the areas of uncertainty with regard to iatrogenic dural tear management. Copyright (2020) Sanctuary for the Physical Arts. RESULTS:The overall rate of dural tears in endoscopic spinal surgery was 2.7%, with a range from 0% to 8.6%. Dural tear. NLM Post dural puncture headache can be a debilitating complication of epidural and subarachnoid anaesthesia for a new mother. If it is a small tear without protrusion of the nerve roots, in most cases a simple covering of the defect with fibrin glue or some type of biologic sealant may be enough. It includes: Posture There is no evidence to support bed rest or specific postures following PDPH. Once a tear occurs, the surgeon makes every effort to repair it as quickly as possible. All devitalized brain tissues are removed along with extravasated blood, foreign bodies and pieces of bone. Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Dural Repair and Management When a dural tear was identified, those <4 mm in size were treated with a 24-hour period of bed rest and in-hospital observation, without any intraoperative intervention. The key to managing dural tears is to prevent them: NEVER perform a move in spine surgery unless you are absolutely certain it is safe. 1. It's easy to be fooled into thinking the tear is smaller than it is or that there is only one tear. When a durotomy occurs, care should be taken to avoid injury to the underlying rootlets, which can herniate out of the tear. Park HJ(1), Kim SK(2), Lee SC(3), Kim W(4), Han S(4), Kang SS(5). The management of a patient with a subdural hematoma will depend greatly on the extent of the bleed, its location, and the overall clinical status. Postoperative management consisted of closed suction wound drainage for an average of 2.1 days and bed rest for an average of 2.9 days. Tested Concept QID: 4404 FIGURES: A B Type & Select Correct Answer. Incidental durotomy during spine surgery: incidence, management and complications. Reconstruction with a graft material may be needed. How long does the patient have to stay in the prescribed position? National Center for Biotechnology Information, Unable to load your collection due to an error, Unable to load your delegates due to an error. The surgeon will decide the optimal time for bed rest based on the size and location of the tear as well as the type of surgery done.In the end, the goal of dural repair is to have a symptom-free result: no headache, no nausea, and no sensitivity to light. There is no consensus about the ideal technique for dural closure in endoscopic procedures. The smaller the tear, the better the expected results.The authors offer several guiding principles for dural tear repairs.  |  22.03.09 (Modifying guideline from 2002) Control Date: 20/03/10 Unintentional Dural Puncture and Post Dural Puncture Headache: Diagnosis & Management in Obstetric Practice Background Information: When loss of CSF is greater than production, as might occur through a dural tear, Dural Repair and Management. A burr hole is made through the normal skull near the fractured portion, and Adson's elevator is introduced. High levels of amylase and lipase in the pseudomeningocele fluid confirmed the presence of a pancreatico-dural fistula, due to a Wirsung duct rupture. Older adults who have developed stiffening of the spinal ligaments are at increased risk for intraoperative dural tears. Next, we designed the working portal depending on the tools needed, … For tears in the cervical spine, sitting upright reduces fluid pressure. In addition, the risk of dural tear is greater in bilateral decompression procedures via a unilateral approach. Epub 2018 Jul 3. The objective of this study was to conduct a literature review on the surgical technique for dural closure and repair in endoscopic spine surgery. Of primary concern to spinal surgeons, however, are inadvertent or unintended dural tears occurring during surgery. Two projects were undertaken. When a dural tear was identified, those <4 mm in size were treated with a 24-hour period of bed rest and in-hospital observation, without any intraoperative intervention. Zum Suchbereich Zum Inhalt Springen Sie zum Katalogsuchfeld Springen Sie zum Website-Suchfeld Springen Sie zur Seite mit Informationen zur Barrierearmut Homepage Universität Leipzig Sealants, particularly PEG hydrogel, may be useful in reducing symptoms related to cerebrospinal fluid leakage, whereas prolonged drainage may be unnecessary. If the dural tear is big and the nerve roots are protruding, a repair is reco mmended. Dural tears secondary to operations on the lumbar spine. The dura mater encloses the brain, spinal cord, cauda equina, nerve roots, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). There's nothing simple about any part of the human body. In addition there were 52 post dural puncture headaches after subarachnoid blocks (1.04%). Author information: (1)Department of Spine Center, Orthopaedic Surgery, Hallym University Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital, Seoul, South Korea. Lumbar Endoscopic Unilateral Laminotomy for Bilateral Decompression Outside-In Approach: A Proctorship Guideline With 12 Steps of Effectiveness and Safety. OBJECTIVE: Incidental durotomy (ID) during lumbar spine surgery is a frequent complication of growing clinical relevance as the number and complexity of spinal procedures increase The incidental dural tear is a common complication in lumbar spine surgery. Results: The surgeon is advised to keep the area well-lit (e.g., use a head lamp and an operating microscope) and dry (e.g., stop any bleeding or leakage of cerebrospinal fluid). The authors offer several guiding principles for dural tear repairs. No. The surgeon must also know what puts patients at an increased risk of dural tears. Objective: USA.gov. Although dural tear is one of the common complications associated with spine surgeries, incidental durotomy induced mortality and morbidity after spine surgery. Conservative Management Aims to relieve symptoms while waiting for the dural tear to heal by itself, or to seal the puncture with epidural blood patch.This may be enough for mild cases of PDPH.
