Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak after Fracture of the Sacrum or Coccyx.

Here is a recent publication by Dr. Foye.

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak after Fracture of the Sacrum or Coccyx.
  • Dr. Foye’s Summary:
    • Leakage of Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is much more commonly expected after fracture of the sacrum, rather than after fracture of the coccyx (tailbone).
    • The reason is that the anatomy of the sacrum contains the spinal canal, which contains CSF.
    • Meanwhile, the anatomy of the coccyx bones do NOT include any spinal canal, and thus the coccyx does not have any CSF.
    • Leakage of CSF after a fracture limited to only the coccyx would mainly only happen if the trauma caused substantial pulling onto the filum terminale (fibrous tissue that extends from the lower tip of the spinal cord to its attachment on the upper coccyx).

Should Coccygectomy be done for a Tailgut Cyst (Retrorectal Hamartoma)?

Many patients come to see me for coccydynia (coccyx pain, tailbone pain).

Occasionally we discover that their pain seems to be coming from a mass, tumor, abscess, or similar problem. (We see these types of things in ~ less than 5% of our patients with coccyx pain.)

One such mass is called a Tailgut Cyst (Retrorectal Hamartoma).

Tailgut Cysts are Located Near the Coccyx 
  • This mass is typically located just in front of the coccyx or just below the coccyx, or sometimes in front of the lower sacrum.
Note: a ‘Tailgut’ Cyst is very different from a ‘Tarlov’ Cyst.
MRI is better than X-rays to see a Tailgut Cyst
  • Note that Tailgut Cysts fail to show up on plain x-rays, which is why advanced imaging studies such as MRI are often helpful and necessary in cases where coccyx pain is persisting or failing to improve with standard non-surgical treatments. (But the MRI needs to be done correctly! See: Link)
Excellent recent article on Tailgut Cysts
  • There was a recent (2019) research study and review article on this topic which was excellent. I recommend that you use the link below to read the full article, for free, at the Journal’s website. The journal is called: the Annals of Coloproctology.
  • Below are my summary points from the article (highlighting important points or quotes from the article, as part of Fair Use commentary):
Surgery is recommended for Tailgut Cysts, for a few reasons:
  • 1) to confirm the diagnosis,
  • 2) to make sure the mass is not a cancer,
  • 3) to avoid complications that can occur if left in place, such as infection or the mass turning into a cancer.
  • Important quote from the article:

“Surgical treatment is always required because of complications including malignant transformation, infection, and perianal fistula formation.”

Should Coccygectomy be done for a Tailgut Cyst (Retrorectal Hamartoma)?

On the topic of whether the surgery for a tailgut cyst should also include coccygectomy (surgical removal/amputation of the coccyx), this seems to be up for debate:

Debate persists about whether the coccyx should be removed with the cyst. Several studies advocate coccygectomy since it improves surgical exposure and decreases risk of recurrence assuming that the coccyx may harbor a nidus of totipotential cellular remnants that may cause recurrence [4, 26]. However, the concern that the coccyx will increase risk of recurrence has not been demonstrated in other studies, especially for cysts not adherent to the coccyx and that can be removed entirely without coccygectomy; hence, coccyx removal is not required [27]. Removal of coccyx was based on the cyst itself and not the coccyx harboring aberrant remnants of the postanal gut leading to cyst formation. Recent trials report preserving the coccyx unless en bloc resection is required for malignancy or cysts densely adhere to the coccyx. Based on our findings, we removed the coccyx for 4 patients: 3 due to the cyst adhering to the coccyx and 1 for a large cyst requiring a combined coccygectomy and lower sacrectomy; the latter cyst was malignant.”

Tarlov Cyst Surgery May Relieve Coccyx Pain

Below is one research publication from Japan reporting on 9 patients.

They found that surgical treatment of Tarlov cysts may help relieve coccyx pain in some of the patients who had Tarlov cyst surgery.


Here is the link to the article at the Journal’s website: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S187887501933195X?via%3Dihub


Below is the abstract: (Presented here as part of “Fair Use” for discussion, commentary, etc.)

World Neurosurg. 2020 Jan 10. pii: S1878-8750(19)33195-X. doi: 10.1016/j.wneu.2019.12.163. [Epub ahead of print]

Myelographic CT, a check-valve mechanism, and microsurgical treatment of sacral perineural Tarlov cysts.
Kikuchi M, Takai K, Isoo A, Taniguchi M.
Department of Neurosurgery, Tokyo Metropolitan Neurological Hospital, 2-6-1, Musashidai, Fuchu, Tokyo, Japan.
Abstract
“OBJECTIVE:

There is currently no consensus regarding surgical indications for symptomatic sacral perineural cysts.

METHODS:

Nine patients with symptomatic sacral perineural cysts underwent microsurgery. All patients fulfilled the following criteria: (1) cyst sizes are larger than 15 mm; (2) cysts show the “delayed inflow” and/or “delayed outflow” of contrast on myelographic CT, and (3) neurological symptoms correlate with the primary cyst.

RESULTS:

On myelographic CT, all primary cysts showed the “delayed inflow” of contrast; the average cyst/thecal sac Hounsfield units (HU) ratio was 0.17. In 7 patients, the primary cyst showed “delayed outflow”; the average cyst/thecal sac HU ratio increased to 3.12 on images obtained 24 hours after contrast injection. Regarding modified Rankin Scale, 67% of patients reported that their overall symptoms improved to normal activities after surgery. The most improved symptom was coccydynia (75% improvement, p=0.017), followed by leg radiation pain (67% improvement, p=0.027) and buttock pain (50% improvement, p=0.068). Bowel/bladder dysfunction improved in 100% of patients, but newly developed in 1 patient (p=0.32). Perineal pain only decreased in 33% (p=0.41).

CONCLUSIONS:

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to have performed a quantitative analysis of the dynamics of CSF in sacral perineural cysts using myelographic CT. Sixty-seven percent of patients benefited from surgery; however, our criteria may not be a necessary and sufficient condition for patient selection because 33% did not respond to surgery despite the successful elimination of the check-valve.”

Looking Below the Sacrococcygeal Joint in Patients with Coccyx Pain, Tailbone Pain

Today I was informed that my latest publication on coccyx pain has just been published by the Indian Journal of Orthopaedics.

The title is:

Looking Below the Sacrococcygeal Joint in Patients with Coccydynia (Coccyx Pain)
Our 3 main points:
  • When treating patients with tailbone pain (coccyx pain, coccydynia), unfortunately doctors often limit themselves to the sacrococcygeal joint (SCJ) and they fail to look lower than that.
  • Doctors often fail to consider the lower coccyx on imaging studies, or during physical exam, or  when providing treatments.
  • This oversight is a problem since the sacrococcygeal joint is usually NOT the site that is causing the tailbone pain. Instead, more often the source of tailbone pain is one of the other joints within the coccyx, or a distal coccyx bone spur .

Due to copyright, I don’t know if I can post the full publication here on my website, so here is the Journal’s Link to the article online: https://rdcu.be/b0jak

  • Thank you to Dr. Betsy Greenleaf, for helping me spread the word about coccydynia (coccyx pain, tailbone pain).
  • It is a shame that so many patients suffer from tailbone problems, yet most doctors have little or no training in the best tests and treatments.
  • I hope that this podcast will help educate both patients and doctors.
