Abstract

Spontaneous intracranial hypotension is one of the causes of a postural headache in young people. In this study, the diagnosis and treatment results of a case of intracranial hypotension headache due to spinal cerebrospinal fluid leakage were reported. Up to now, there is not absolutely effective treatment for intracranial hypotension headache. A 32-year-old woman complained, a headache after prolonged sitting that presented with nausea; vomiting; increased pain during walking; and decreased or absent pain after lying down. The dramatic improvement of this cephalalgia with epidural blood patch treatment confirmed the diagnosis. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported of radiographic contrast before and after epidural blood patch. Improved clinical diagnosis and treatment of spontaneous intracranial hypotension. The patient didn't feel any discomfort, no complications such as infection etc. were observed. A small dose of intrathecal gadolthis is the first reported case ofinium during CEMRM allows for improved detection of CSF leakage. Leakage of spinal CSF is a major cause of spontaneous intracranial hypotension. In order to improve clinical diagnosis and provide effective treatment, the precise etiology of spontaneous intracranial hypotension should be investigated in each patient.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 December 2016.
All research outputs
#4,048,075
of 15,442,255 outputs
Outputs from SpringerPlus
#309
of 1,799 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#109,753
of 384,258 outputs
Outputs of similar age from SpringerPlus
#103
of 489 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,442,255 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 73rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,799 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 384,258 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 489 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its contemporaries.
