Epidural blood patch: is a procedure in which autologous blood is injected epidurally at or near the site of prior LP, epidural, spinal. It works by sealing the cerebrospinal fluid leak & by dural tamponade resultant from volume replacement. Pressure from the latter mechanism uncommonly causes transient back pain and paresthesia, usually a good sign. Fever may be seen too. Dr should be informed rig
