F18 Preventing CSF leaks using a pericranial graft during Chiari decompression.


Gopinath S.




In adults, Chiari decompression commonly involves duraplasty using synthetic materials. A significant proportion of those cases present later with CSF leak or pseudomeningocele. For the past several years, we have been using a pericranial graft to create a duraplasty and have not come across any patient with complications. We will describe our experience with a short video showing the technique.
