Spinal spray, also known as spinal irrigation or spinal lavage, is a medical procedure used to treat conditions affecting the spinal cord. It involves the injection of a solution into the spinal canal through a small needle or catheter, which is then used to flush out the affected area.
Spinal spray is often used in the treatment of spinal infections, such as meningitis or spinal abscesses. It can also be used to remove blood or other fluids from the spinal canal in cases of spinal cord injury.
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, and patients are closely monitored during and after the procedure for any complications or adverse effects.
