Surgical management of an ossified giant lumbar pseudomeningocele: A case report – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article discusses the successful surgical management of a giant pseudomeningocele (PM) that became calcified three years after an initial spine surgery. Pseudomeningoceles are rare complications of spine surgery caused by accidental tears and leakage of cerebrospinal fluid. Giant PMs, defined as being at least 8 cm in diameter, are rarely reported in the literature. The case described in the article highlights the challenges in managing such cases due to the lack of clear guidelines for surgical intervention. The successful 3-year delayed surgical intervention for an ossified giant PM is emphasized in the report
