Pseudomeningocele treatment in India is performed at technologically advanced hospitals in Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai. A Pseudomeningocele is an abnormal collection of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that communicates with the CSF space around the brain or spinal cord. In contrast to a meningocele, in which the fluid is surrounded and confined by dura mater, in a pseudomeningocele, the fluid has no surrounding membrane but is contained in a cavity within the soft tissues. Pseudomeningocele may result after brain surgery, spine surgery, or brachial plexus avulsion injury. Pseudomeningocele treatment in India comes with top class healthcare and hardly any waitlist.

Close evaluation of preoperative neuroimaging studies, meticulous surgical technique, and liberal use of microscopic magnification will often avert iatrogenic pseudomeningocele and CSF fistula. All available preoperative neurodiagnostic images should be evaluated for evidence of bone defects caused by possible occult spina bifida or previous surgeries. Each Kerrison rongeur bite should be preceded by the necessary dissections to ensure that the dura mater does not come between the footplate and bone. The movement of the drill is directed laterally so that even with a slip a dural tear may be avoided. A cottonoid should cover the exposed dura during the drilling. When a dural tear does occur, every attempt should be made to achieve a water-tight primary closure. This includes extending the laminectomy, if necessary, to gain better exposure to repair the dura, and using loupe magnification or the operating microscope.

Indian healthcare sector has witnessed a tremendous growth in infrastructure in the private and voluntary sector. The private sector which was very modest in the early stages has now become a flourishing industry equipped with the most modern state-of-the-art technology at its disposal.
