The efficacy and compatibility of intrathecal corticoid therapy was studied in a series of 160 patients (out of a total collective of 3000 patients operated on over a 5-year period for disc herniation) suffering from continuing pain in the first 5 days following discectomy. 80 patients received triamcinolone acetonide in crystalline suspension (Volon A 80, 2.0 ml) intrathecally via lumbar puncture on the 5th postoperative day (group A).

Posture dependent headaches were never observed following peridural anaesthesis. This result disproves the hypothesis of a purely psychogenic origin of postpunctional headache. The frequency of occurrence of the postpunctional syndrome was 39% after lumbar puncture, but only 4.9% after spinal anaesthesis. The observed difference is due to the fact that needles with a smaller diameter are applied in spinal anaesthesia...
