Comparison of sprotte and Quincke needles with respect to spinal fluid leakage using artificial spinal cord


This research investigated whether the Sprotte needle causes less leakage of CSF than the Quincke needle in the artificial spinal cord. The changes in intradural pressure, extradural pressure, and leaked volume of CSF were evaluated following puncture with Sprotte and Quincke needles in the artificial spinal cord. The decrease in intradural pressure was 9.7… (More)
