Accidental dural puncture is usually easily recognized by the immediate loss of CSF through the epidural needle.
These may be the cause of chronic sciatica due to chronic dural irritation.
In most cases, dural ectasia occurs in the lower spine, producing low back ache, a burning feeling, or numbness or weakness in the legs.
Dural ectasia can be distinguished from other causes of back pain on an MRI.
