9 We have not had any infections in our series to date, and our unintended durotomy rate has dropped from 8% in the initial series of patients9 to around 1% more recently. Direct suture repair of durotomy is difficult through the narrow-diameter tubes. Therefore, one technique for handling small defects is simply to cover the durotomy with muscle, fat, Gelfoam (Pfizer, New York, NY), or dural substitute followed by fibrin glue or synthetic sealants. Using this approach, overnight bed rest is usually sufficient to seal the defect.
