Abstract

TO THE EDITOR: Approximately 30% of spinal tumors are intradural extramedullary. The neurosurgical treatment of such lesions, has been characterized by a progressive reduction of overall morbidity and mortality, due to the development of microsurgery, to the improvement of anaesthesiologic techniques and the introduction of neurophysiologic monitoring. Despite these relevant achievements, CSF leaks still frequently occur, with reported incidences between 5% and 13%.1.
