Lumbar Puncture: Consensus Guidelines

Onderzoeksoutput: Chapterpeer review

Samenvatting

Cerebrospinal fluid collection by lumbar puncture (LP) is performed in the diagnostic workup of several neurological brain diseases. Reluctance to perform the procedure is among others due to a lack of standards and guidelines to minimize the risk of complications, such as post-LP headache or back pain. We provide a summary of consensus guidelines for the LP procedure to minimize the risk of complications.
Our consensus guidelines provide a step-by-step procedure description and address contraindications, as well as patient-related and procedure-related risk factors that can influence the development of post-LP complications. When an LP is performed correctly, the procedure is well tolerated and accepted with a low complication rate.
