THE TAKE-HOME MESSAGE
- CSF drainage during TEVAR procedures only stands on low evidence and small studies.
- Most centers differentiate between low-risk and high-risk patients for spinal cord injuries.
- Most clinicians use continuous CSF drainage in high-risk patients, despite the low evidence of this technique.
- Experts think it may be difficult to perform randomized controlled studies in such cases.
- Individual decisions should be tailored according to the patient clinical condition and the teamwork decision.
- CSF drainage catheter insertion, monitoring and management of the drain in the postoperative period need special experience and care.
