Hepatocellular carcinoma metastases to the epidural space
Professor Steven Cohen, who led the research in America, said that just injecting liquid into the epidural space

Briefly, the patient was positioned prone and 20 cc of blood was obtained from the patient's arm under sterile technique while the epidural space
was accessed under fluoroscopic guidance.
Intrathecal MR cisternography showed diffuse dural leakage into the epidural space
at the level of dorso-lumbar region.
Preferably the L3-L4 epidural space
was located with a 17-gauge Tuohy needle using loss-of-resistance to air.
Involvement of the spinal epidural space
is unusual; only 32 cases have been reported, with a mean age of 19.
