A Technique for Localizing High-Flow Spinal Cerebrospinal Fluid Leaks
We’ve added an interesting journal article on the use of dynamic CT Myelography in locating the site of a high-flow cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak. You can download the article by clicking here.
In some patients with spontaneous spinal CSF leaks, leaks are numerous or tears are so large that extrathecal myelographic contrast material is seen at multiple levels during CT, making identification of their source impossible. This study introduces a dynamic CT myelographic technique that provides high temporal and spatial resolution. In this technical note, we describe the utility of this technique in four patients with challenging high-flow spinal CSF leaks.
