Precision-formed side hole permits the directional flow of anesthetic and reduces the possibility of the bevel
straddling the dura.

Anesthesists want to MINIMISE THE RISK OF DURA PUNCTURE.

(injection à cheval sur la dure-mère).

This type of headaches occurs when the dura (the covering outside the spinal cord) is punctured by the needle. CSF (spinal fluid) which bathes the spinal cord and brain then leaks out of the hole created by the needle.

REGARDING PDPDH (postdural puncture headache), SEE
A clear definition of PDPH is necessary to be able to compare its incidence as reported by different authors. It is given by Carrie and Collins: “A headache occurring after dural puncture which has a significant effect on the patient’s postoperative wellbeing..."

in between (or going to two different sides)


Explanation:
the idea of "à cheval" is that of bridging two different sides, like a house that is built on the border of two countries: une maison à cheval entre les deux pays.
