Clinical Trails at Rush Study of Dural Sealant Used in Cranial Procedures
Clinical Trial Protocol ID
10010603

Clinical Trial Investigator Name
Lorenzo Muņoz, MD

Clinical Trial Title

A Pivotal Clinical Trial Evaluating the Safety and Effectiveness of an Investigational Dural Sealant Used in Cranial Procedures



Clinical Trial Protocol Description

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether or not an investigational dural sealant can be used safely and effectively to help seal the dura mater after cranial (brain) surgery. The dura mater normally encloses cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which bathes the brain tissue. After cranial surgery, the dura is stitched together; however, CSF may still leak through small stitch holes. The investigational dural sealant will be used to stop CSF leaks along with standard of care methods to close the dura tissue at the end of the surgical procedure. In this study, the investigational dural sealant system will be compared to the FDA-approved DuraSeal Dural Sealant System. One of the goals of this study is to see if the investigational dural sealant system performs as well as the DuraSeal Dural Sealant System.
