Exact preoperative localization of the dural defect is an essential requirement for successful surgery of CSF fistula. Eighteen digital subtraction cisternography (DSC) results reported here were performed upon 16 patients with CSF rhinorrhea and 1 patient with CSF otorrhea. The exact site of the dural lesion could be proved in 9 out of 11 cases with active CSF leakage. In 4 cases the fistula was located in the cribriform plate, whereas it was found in the planum sphenoidale and the middle… CONTINUE READING
