BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Neurological complications of spinal anesthesia are rare conditions. Headache caused by low pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid is one of the most frequent, which occurs after post-dural puncture. A comprehensive history and physical exam must be carried out before making the diagnosis of Post-Dural Puncture Headache (PDPH) and additional tests are necessary to exclude the possibility of developing serious neurological complications such as Dural Sinus Thrombosis (DST)...

OBJECTIVE Post-dural puncture headaches are common, and the treatment of such headaches can be complex when they become chronic. Among patients with spontaneous spinal CSF leaks, digital subtraction myelography (DSM) can localize the exact site of the leak when an extradural CSF collection is present, and it can also demonstrate CSF-venous fistulas in those without an extradural CSF collection. The authors now report on the use of DSM in the management of patients with chronic post-dural puncture headaches...

BACKGROUND: Cranial nerve palsy is a rarely reported complication of central neuraxial block in obstetrics. The aetiology is diverse and includes both decreased and increased intracranial pressure. METHODS: Medline, CINAHL, and EMBASE databases were searched to identify cases of cranial nerve palsy following obstetric central neuraxial block. Possible aetiology, clinical symptoms and signs, treatment, and time to resolution were assessed. RESULTS: Forty-one articles containing 43 case reports of cranial nerve palsy following obstetric central neuraxial block were identified...

OBJECTIVES: Epidural blood patch is the gold standard for the treatment of postdural puncture headache (PDPH) when conservative treatments have failed to provide any relief. However, alternative therapies are lacking when epidural blood patch persistently fails to improve symptoms. Failure to treat PDPH may lead to significant functional impairment of daily living. Alternative therapies should be sought to accelerate recovery from PDPH. CASE REPORT: This case describes a woman who developed PDPH secondary to accidental dural puncture during a spinal cord stimulator trial...

BACKGROUND: Post-dural puncture headache (PDPH) is an important complication of neuroaxial anesthesia and more frequently noted in pregnant women. The pain is described as severe, disturbing and its location is usually fronto-occipital. The conservative treatment of PDPH consists of bed rest, fluid theraphy, analgesics and caffeine. Epidural blood patch is gold standard theraphy but it is an invasive method. The greater occipital nerve (GON) is formed of sensory fibers that originate in the C2 and C3 segments of the spinal cord and it is the main sensory nerve of the occipital region...

Unintended dural punctures with leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are recognized as a frequent complication of spinal surgery. Although conservative or invasive options may be used to treat postoperative CSF leaks, the existing literature does not define either an algorithmic treatment approach or a universally accepted standard of care. We believe that a transforaminal epidural blood patch (EBP) can serve as a minimally invasive, cost-effective option to treat postsurgical CSF leaks that do not resolve with conservative management...

UNLABELLED: Cerebral venous stroke is disfunction of brain cause by thrombosis of cerebral veins or thrombosis of sinus of the dura mater. This disease represents about 0,5-1% of all strokes. Women are ill more often. There are over 100 factors which cause this disease. The most often symptoms are headache, epileptic fit, oedema of optic nerve, loss of visual acuity, speech defects. Magnetic resonance proves the diagnosis. MRI with contrast is recommended. A CASE REPORT: We show the case of a young woman taking the oral contraceptive pill whose only symptom of venous thrombosis for a few days was a strong headache...

OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the efficacy of IV cosyntropin as an alternative to epidural blood patch (EBP) for refractory or severe post-dural puncture headache (PDPH). METHODS: Twenty-eight patients were randomized to receive EBP or intravenous cosyntropin after diagnosis with post-dural puncture headache. Efficacy was evaluated immediately after treatment and at 1 day, 3 days, and 7 days following treatment using self-reported verbal reported scores for pain and function related to their headache on a 10-point scale using two-way repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) with multiple comparisons...

We report a case of refractory spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) following epidural anesthesia. In this case, typical clinical symptoms and concomitant use of regional anesthesia led to the misdiagnosis of SIH as post-dural puncture headache (PDPH). A 56-year-old man received a successful appendectomy under epidural anesthesia performed at a T11-T12 intravertebral space. About 20 h later, the patient started complaining about orthostatic headache when getting up from his lying position, then a PDPH was diagnosed...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the post-partum management of women and their newborn whatever the mode of delivery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The PubMed database, the Cochrane Library and the recommendations from the French and foreign obstetrical societies or colleges have been consulted. RESULTS: Because breastfeeding is associated with a decrease in neonatal morbidity (lower frequency of cardiovascular diseases, infectious, atopic or infantile obesity) (EL2) and an improvement in the cognitive development of children (EL2), exclusive and extended breastfeeding is recommended (grade B) between 4 to 6 months (Professional consensus)...

We present a case of postdural puncture headache in a patient with extensive epidural fluid accumulation. An initial epidural blood patch was aborted because of concern about increased risk of complications. After magnetic resonance imaging, we proceeded with epidural blood patch with a good therapeutic result. We discuss the imaging results and safety concerns we considered when assessing the benefits and risks of epidural blood patch in this patient.

Epidural blood patch is a frequently successful treatment for postdural puncture headache. It is not clear whether a recent epidural blood patch affects subsequent neuraxial analgesia. We describe the case of a patient who received an epidural blood patch for postdural puncture headache and returned 3 days later in active labor, requesting epidural analgesia. The patient successfully received analgesia from a combined spinal epidural without further complications. We discuss the anesthetic considerations for providing neuraxial analgesia after a recent epidural blood patch...

Epidural injection of hydroxyethyl starch may be a suitable alternative for treatment of post-dural puncture headache (PDPH) if epidural blood patch is contraindicated. We reported eight consecutive female patients with accidental dural puncture (ADP), among whom prophylactic or therapeutic epidural injection of hydroxyethyl starch was performed. Prophylactic epidural injection of hydroxyethyl starch 20 ml was conducted once a day for two days, without sufentanil supplementation, and mild PDPH took place in three of four patients...

We report the case of a 25-year-old woman, who received epidural analgesia for labor pain and subsequently presented post-dural puncture headache. Conservative treatment was applied and epidural blood patch was performed. In the absence of clinical improvement and due to changes in the postural component of the headache, a brain imaging test was performed showing a bilateral subdural hematoma. The post-dural puncture headache is relatively common, but the lack of response to established medical treatment as well as the change in its characteristics and the presence of neurological deficit, should raise the suspicion of a subdural hematoma, which although is rare, can be lethal if not diagnosed and treated at the right time...
