Clinical Trial Summary

Post-spinal headache is divided into 3 according to the severity scale. It is divided into 3 groups as mild, moderate and severe according to the presence of symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and dizziness that prevent daily activity. It has been reported that CSF leakage may be higher due to the weakness of the regional dural sac in primary connective tissue diseases with joint laxity and isolated joint hypermobility. Joint laxity is scored according to the level of motion in 5 different joints and a maximum of 9 points is obtained. In this study, it was aimed to investigate whether joint laxity contributes to the development of post-spinal headache by questioning the correlation between joint laxity examination score and postspinal headache in patients with post-spinal headache.


Clinical Trial Description

Post dural puncture headache (PDPH), also known as post lumbar puncture (LP) headache, is a common complication of diagnostic LP. It also can occur following spinal anesthesia or, more commonly, inadvertent dural puncture during attempted epidural catheter placement. The headache is usually positional (worse when upright, better when lying flat) and is often accompanied by neck stiffness, photophobia, nausea, or subjective hearing symptoms. In various studies, common patient risk factors for PDPH have included female gender, pregnancy, age 18 to 50 years compared with older or younger ages, and a prior history of headache Additionally it has been thought that joint laxity contributes to the development of post dural puncture headache. However, no study has been found in the literature examining this relationship between them. In thıs study it was aimed to investigate the relationship between joint laxity and post dural puncture headache. ;
