Background/aim: Epidural fibrosis (El) is a common cause of failed back surgery syndrome seen after spinal surgeries. The most frequent reason for the formation of BF is accumulated blood and its products in the operation zone. On the development of ER the effect of bipolar coagulation and fibrillar oxidized cellulose, which are used frequently to control bleeding, was investigated.
