Core Tip The number of laminectomies is increasing, and incidental durotomy sometimes occurs intraoperatively. One of the approaches to manage dural tears was using sealants such as DuraSealTM. We present the case of a 77-year-old patient who suffered from incidental durotomy with treatment of using DuraSealTM when undergoing spine surgery. Postoperative cauda equina syndrome was noted. Surgical exploration revealed thecal sac and nerve roots compression by entrapped hematoma. Our case highlights the potential catastrophic consequences of over-expansion of dural sealant, and demonstrates that cauda equina syndrome should be considered if neurological symptoms develop following application of DuraSealTM.
