Abstract

Postdural puncture headache – a complication of puncture of the spinal dura mater – is a common side-effect of spinal anesthesia and lumbar puncture. Its incidence can be reduced with the use of the thinnest needles, needles with pencil-point tips instead of Quincke-point tips, lateral orientation of Quincke-point bevel, and with stylet reinsertion after puncture. Drugs and hydration are less effective. Bed rest is ineffective.
