This is a rare complication that may occur if a small hole is made in the fibrous sac and does not close up after the needle puncture. These small holes are only made in less than 1% of epidural injections and usually heal on their own. The spinal fluid inside can leak out, and when severe, the brain loses the cushioning effect of the fluid, which causes a severe headache when you sit or stand. These types of headaches occur typically about 2-3 days after the procedure and are positional - they come on when you sit or stand and go away when you lie down. If you do develop a spinal headache, it is OK to treat yourself. As long as you do not feel ill and have no fever and the headache goes away when you lay down, you may treat yourself with 24 hours of bed rest with bathroom privileges while drinking plenty of fluids. This almost always works. If it does not, contact the radiologist who performed the procedure or your referring physician. A procedure (called an epidural blood patch) can be performed in the hospital that has a very high success rate in treating spinal headaches.  

Noninferiority trials have serious inherent limitations , the main one being that (unlike in a superiority trial), given a finding of noninferiority, it is impossible to distinguish between true equivalence and poor execution or faulty pretrial a priori assumptions regarding expectations of benefit and event rates. In this particular trial, a 15% absolute difference in the primary outcome was arguably too large to use as a noninferiority threshold. That threshold implies acceptance of 1 additional COPD exacerbation for each 7 patients treated. If a superiority trial showed a week's extra steroids prevented 1 COPD exacerbation for 10 or even 20 patients treated (, a 5-10% noninferiority margin), I think many doctors and patients would endorse longer-course prednisone. This trial (as designed) would fail to detect that.

Epidural Steroid Injection Procedures are a common and minimally invasive procedure to treat inflammation present inside the spinal canal. This inflammation can occur in the spinal nerve, due to tissues next to the nerve (disc, facet joints, scar tissue, bone spurs, bone material) pressing or rubbing against it. The beginning of the nerve (nerve root) is most often irritated by an displaced intervertebral disc, bulged, herniated (protrusion, extrusion, sequestration) or a diseased disc (torn, fissured, collapsed, degenerated), directly.

The Facts About Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
*26 million Americans have CKD and millions of others are at increased risk.
*Early detection can help prevent the progression of kidney disease to kidney failure.
*Heart disease is the major cause of death for all people with CKD.
*Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is the best estimate of kidney function.
*Hypertension causes CKD and CKD causes hypertension.
*Persistent proteinuria (protein in the urine) means CKD is present.
*High-risk groups include those with diabetes, hypertension and family history of kidney disease.
*African Americans, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, Native Americans and seniors are at increased risk.
*Three simple tests can detect CKD: blood pressure, urine albumin and serum creatinine.
