Dural tears (DT) and the consequent cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leak are not rare in spine surgeries. CSF leak can be troublesome, leading to pseudomeningocele, cutaneous cerebrospinal fluid fistula, and meningitis. Revision surgery is unavoidable in some cases.

Morbidity and revision surgery secondary to infection remains high, even while using antibiotic impregnated catheters.
