Abstract

Background: This study reports the anatomopathological classification of Tarlov cysts and the various treatment techniques described in the literature. Methods: The authors present their patient series (19 cases) with a long follow-up (range 9 months to 25 years) treated by cyst remodeling around the root using titanium clips. Results: The technique is effective in both avoiding cerebrospinal fluid leakage and resolving bladder dysfunction when urinary symptoms are incomplete and discontinuous. Conclusions: The clipping technique for Tarlov cysts is easy, valid, safe, rapid, and effective.
