Direct suture repair of durotomy is difficult through the narrow-diameter tubes. Therefore, one technique for handling small defects is simply to cover the durotomy with muscle, fat, Gelfoam (Pfizer, New York, NY), or dural substitute followed by fibrin glue or synthetic sealants. Using this approach, overnight bed rest is usually sufficient to seal the defect. For larger dural tears that cannot be primarily closed, 2 to 3 days of lumbar CSF drainage may prevent a leak. Fortunately, the small opening and relative lack of dead space after minimally invasive procedures have made the incidence of postoperative pseudomeningoceles and CSF-cutaneous fistulae negligible.

Wang Advances in digital fluoroscopy, image guidance systems, and surgical endoscopy have improved intraoperative visualization such that a wide range of surgeries can now be performed through smaller incisions. Such approaches result in less local tissue damage, blood loss, and reduced overall morbidity. Because traditional open posterior approaches to the cervical spine necessitate extensive subperiosteal dissection and muscular retraction, they can be associated with increased intraoperative blood loss and prolonged postoperative pain.
