DuraSeal Spinal Sealant

Started by IrishEves on 11/15/2015 10:13am

About 8 hours after PLIF I developed numbness on the left side which is my surgical side. I believe this is hemi cauda equina syndrome. During surgery I had a cerebrospinal fluid leak that was patched with sutures and dural sealant. Still on indwelling catheter one month out and numbness in saddle area, left side only.

I found two cases like mine that were caused by expansion of the DuraSeal, which can swell up to 50% of the origininal amount applied. MRI upcoming in 2 days.

Anybody with numbness and loss of bladder function due to swelling of DuraSeal?
