Sample text

The first spinal hematoma in a patient with altered hemostasis was noted by Bonica [2] in 1953. The patient complained of signs consistent with cauda equina syndrome four days after bloody spinal puncture. Exploratory laminectomy revealed extensive clots within the subarachnoid space, which were compressing the conus medullaris. Hemostasis was difficult due to continued intrathecal bleeding. The wound was packed, exacerbating neurologic ischemia, and the patient sustained irreversible neurologic injury.

Because neurologic outcome is linked to early diagnosis and intervention, it is critical to obtain radiographic imaging—preferably magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)—as soon as possible. Consultation with a neurosurgeon should also occur as soon as possible to determine the urgency of surgery. Interestingly, not all spinal hematomas are treated with emergency laminectomy and spontaneous resolution of deficits has been reported [19, 43, 44]. However, the decision to observe versus surgically intervene is a neurosurgical one.

However, large inclusive surveys evaluate the frequencies of complications (including spinal 20 Section 1 ■ Regional Anesthesia hematoma) as well as identify subgroups of patients with higher or lower risk enhance risk stratification. Moen et al. [7] investigated serious neurologic complications among 1,260,000 spinal and 450,000 epidural blocks performed in Sweden over a 10-year period. Among the 33 spinal hematomas, 24 occurred in females, and 25 others were associated with an epidural technique.
