A synthetic dural sealant polymer named "DuraSeal" is used in our institution following dural breach at spinal surgery.
It has a high water content,
therefore follows CSF signal on all sequences.
It can easily be mistaken for CSF pseudomeningocele on postoperative MRI.
The learning objectives are therefore:
- To raise awareness of potential diagnostic confusion with this product;
- To aid patient safety by sharing our experience in our institution with this product.
