Epidural Blood Patch

Is a minimally invasive procedure very similar to an epidural steroid injection. The needle is placed in the spinal column. The patient will have blood drawn from their arm or hand that will be used to inject into the epidural space. The blood will close one or many holes in the dura mater of the spinal chord, usually from a previous puncture. The blood patch relieves post dural puncture headaches caused by the lumbar puncture.
