Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak Repairs (Surgery)
Body Area: Head / Neck
Body Parts: Eyes
Symptoms: Blurred Vision
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks can produce symptoms such as headaches while standing, tinnitus, blurred vision, or tingling and facial numbness. Cerebrospinal fluid leaks are usually managed with noninvasive treatments, but when a cerebrospinal fluid leak continues, it may need surgical repair. Surgery is frequently done through the nose or through the skull to place a synthetic patch.
