An epidural blood patch is a treatment method where a blood sample is taken from a patient and then injected into the epidural space shortly thereafter. This method is commonly used to treat patients with spinal headaches. These headaches occur from a lumbar puncture that subsequently led to a cerebrospinal fluid leak. These patches seal the site of the leak and restore the optimal pressure in the brain. In doing so, they effectively treat lumbar puncture-related conditions.
This treatment method is minimally invasive. It usually takes 30 minutes to complete. Further, it has consistently demonstrated the ability to provide patients with significant relief.
