« Patients who undergo for spine revision surgery with epidural fibrosis in which CADISS is used intraoperatively present better intraoperative and perioperative parameters. The surgical difficulty and the incidence of dural tears and intraoperative bleeding from epidural veins are significantly reduced. »

Benefits

Gentle detachment of scar tissue or removal of implanted devices without iatrogenic lesion to critical structures (e.g Dura Mater)

Better intraoperative and perioperative parameters thanks to the preservation of the surrounding healthy structures

Easier identification of cleavage planes

Tested and approved

Withdraw as much as possible fibrotic tissue with classical instruments to reach as close as possible the dura (e.g. 2mm)
When arriving close to the structure to be preserved e.g., the dura mater, instill the solution through the irrigated instruments on the fibrosis to be detached from the healthy structure and/or implanted material
Ensure a minimum 5-minute optimal contact between the solution and the fibrosis (no suction, no flow) to weaken the adherence
Dissect with the non-aggressive CADISS instruments
Rinse after 10 minutes
