Spinal Tap Needle Impacts Risk of Complications

A lumbar puncture, commonly known as a spinal tap, is a regular medical procedure used to diagnose and to treat disease. Post-dural puncture headaches appear in about 35% of patients, sometimes causing debilitating pain that can lead to a return to hospital for painkillers or more invasive treatment. More...
