CSF Leaker Profiles

Our Day Seven Leaker Profile, and our final one for Leak Week UK 2018, comes from John Jackson.

We first meet John on Tuesday in his Life with a Leak video. So many people were touched by his story, we thought we’d offer him the floor to write a little more about it today.

Life with a CSF Leak: Leah Smith

Update from our Medical Advisory Committee

We published some feedback from the meeting and outlined some of the priorities for the future.

On Monday, we published our brand new short animation explaining the basics of a CSF leak.


On Wednesday, we published a brand new factsheet: A Quick Reference Guide to Imaging techniques for Spinal CSF Leaks.
