CONy 2023 | Management of spontaneous intracranial hypotension

Spontaneous intracranial hypotension is caused by loss of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The most frequent symptom is orthostatic headache, with the headache worsening in the upright position and subsiding after lying down. Vlasta Vukovic Cvetković, MD, PhD, University Hospital Glostrup, Danish Headache Center, Copenhagen, Denmark, talks on the diagnosis and management of spontaneous intracranial hypotension. Neuroimaging has a crucial role in diagnosing and localizing the site of CSF leakage, which is fundamental to treat patients successfully. Treatment includes targeted epidural patches and surgical closure when conservative measures do not provide long-term relief. This interview took place at the 17th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy) in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
