Amazing footage of an operation to repair a cerebrospinal fluid [CSF] leak. In some patients, the CSF may start leaking spontaneously. This type of leakage occurs into the ear or the sinuses. In this surgical video, you will see the repair of a spontaneous CSF leakage that originated in the posterior fossa. This surgery is performed by Dr. Hamid R. Djalilian, director of otology, neurotology, and skull base surgery. Notice the introduction of fascia and bone wax to help seal the leakage.
