Epidurography: Selective catheter technique and review of 53 cases

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Lumbar epidurography was performed in 53 patients at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the diagnostic efficacy of the procedure was documented. The anatomy of the epidural space and the techniques for epidurography are discussed. The procedure is advocated as an adjunct to lumbar myelography, particularly in patients with a prominent ventral epidural space and confusing or equivocal clinical examination.
