CSF Leakage Prevention
Leakage of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) remains a significant contributor to mortality for neurosurgery patients, especially for patients undergoing posterior fossa surgery
Challenges from CSF Pressure
Dura closure in posterior fossa and chiari surgery can be challenging due to CSF pressure. It is important to use sealants that provide watertight dura closure.
Need for Combination Hemostat and Sealant Patches
Dura reconstruction in supracentral tumor surgery may require combination hemostat and sealant patches for optimal patient outcomes
