Abstract
Propose : In this study, we evaluated whether powder on surgical gloves is a cause of postpuncture backpain in children. Mothods : In 164 children with meningitis between July and September 1997, we did not remove powder from surgical gloves. However, in 149 children with menigitis between May and October 2001 the powder was removed from the surgical gloves.
Results
: Out of the 164 patients in 1997, 41 cases(25.00%) were found to have postdural puncture backpain. On the other hand, out of 149 patients in 2001, with whom we used gloves from which the powder was removed, we found only 8 patients(5.36%) with postdural puncture backpain.
Conclusion
: We conclude that the powder on surgical gloves is one of the main causes of postdural puncture backpain in children.
