Epidural Blood Patch Treatment Procedure
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

An epidural blood patch treatment procedure is a procedure performed to relieve spinal headaches, which sometimes occur after a myelogram, epidural steroid injection, spinal anesthesia or back surgery. An epidural blood patch treatment procedure is a necessary procedure when there is a tear or hole in the membrane that covers the spinal cord, causing a spinal fluid leak. During the epidural blood patch treatment procedure, blood will be drawn from your arm and injected near the site of the previous injection. The blood injected in the epidural space then patches the tear or hole in the membrane.
