Abstract

Based on our small study of ten patients, we believe that the administration of a volume of blood between 12-15 ml will produce a satisfactory epidural blood patch, and the recommendation to use 20 ml is not necessary and probably not warranted. Our study supports the previous finding of cephaled spread of injected solutions in the epidural space and the recommendation to use the lowermost interspace in case of multiple punctures.
