CEREBROSPINAL FLUID (CSF) LEAKAGE 

Abstract

 Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage is a rare but grave condition that needs meticulous and well-timed intervention. Autologous materials, such as temporalis fascia, temporalis muscle, fascia lata, cortical bone, cartilage, and fat, are widely available. We have presented a simple and effective method for the management of the small to moderate (up to 15mm) dural defects occurring during the surgeries of the skull base. We have used a free MUSCLE GRAFT in a sand clock fashion (dumbbell-shaped) through the defect. This procedure enables the surgeon to close the defect and cease the leak even in the anatomically difficult areas, which are not uncommon when the surgical operation is on the skull base.
