Learning objectives

 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:

 

  1. To raise awareness of potential diagnostic confusion with this product; 
  2. To aid patient safety by sharing our experience in our institution with this product.
