In our institution, EBP were administered using 20 cc of blood taken from the patient's arm and injected it into the epidural space
one level cranial to the surgical procedure level, verified by fluoroscopy.
But in our case, seizure developed while blood was being injected into the epidural space
and it did not recur during the second and slower procedure or thereafter.
Some cases after EBP report that the epidural needle was correctly located within the epidural space
(15,16), so it has been speculated that while the operator is collecting venous blood, the dural rent from an earlier unintentional dural puncture allows air to pass to the subarachnoid space, because of negative intrathoracic pressure during inspiration, which reduces epidural pressure to subatmospheric.
SEL is a condition in which an abnormal excess adipose tissue is deposited circumferentially around the spinal cord in the epidural space
An injection of cortisone or other steroid into the epidural space
treats inflammation of the spinal nerve roots resulting from disk compression or spinal stenosis.
Foraminoplasty involves the use of Holmium laser energy through an endoscope to create an opening through the foramen into the epidural space
(through which the nerves of the spinal column extend), by vaporizing a small amount of non-load bearing bone in the spine.
With a direct view of tissue in the epidural space
surrounding the spine, we can locate the source of pain for many types of problems and test whether a given treatment, such as the injection of medication along a particular nerve route, will be worthwhile," explains Timothy R.
A labor epidural is the injection of a cocaine-like drug called bupivocaine into the epidural space
located at the base of a woman's spinal column during the laboring stage of childbirth.
With the Spinal Modulation[TM] SCS system, a specialized system is placed in epidural space
near the DRG, allowing pain signals to be modulated.
The electrical pulses are conveyed by small electrodes placed in the epidural space
and connected to a compact battery-powered generator implanted under the skin.
Patients have a wire that is connected to a battery pack and inserted into their epidural space
The upper level of the contrast medium in the subarachnoid space was observed to rise progressively when 5 ml aliquots of normal saline were injected into the epidural space
In this paper, we present a case of primary frontal sinus aspergilloma which eroded the posterior wall of the frontal sinus, reaching the epidural space
and resulting in empyema.
47-49) The epidural space
can be reached via caudal, interlaminar or transforaminal approaches.
Initially, a trial is performed by placing temporary leads into the epidural space
to evaluate the patient's response to electrical current to the spinal cord.
