CSF is an abbreviation for Cerebral Spinal Fluid. The CSF leaks happen when the fluid surrounding the brain leaks through a hole in the skull bone. The fluid sometimes leaks and drains through the ear or the nose. The place of the leakage depends on where the skull bone is damaged. The most common symptoms of the spinal fluid leaks are a severe headache accompanied by watery drainage either from one side of the nose or ear. There are two known types of reason for this- either a natural one or a leakage as an aftermath of a head injury or surgery. The conditions have to be immediately checked by a neurologist, as the headaches will be quite severe in the initial stages. CSF leak diagnosis can be handled either medically or surgically. In medical treatment usually taking 2 - 3 weeks of rest and avoiding all stress related works solves them naturally. If the symptoms don't improve then, surgeries are performed. CSF leak surgery is usually carried out by endoscopy. A graft material is placed in the hole, and thus the leakage is plugged. CSF Rhinorrhea Repair Surgery Treatment uses skin graft too as a part of the layer to plug the hole. Surgeries are performed only in rare cases as the CSF has a natural tendency to cure on its own with proper rest and medications. Most of the cases do not have any lasting symptoms. However, an MRI of the head can be taken and checked with a neurologist to cover common grounds.
