Abstract:

The authors report of ozone administration into the subarachnoid 
space for the treatment of chronic scarring--adhesive processes in 
the pial membrane. Among the 104 studied patients, 62 had convexital 
leptomeningitis, 7--basal, 3--of the posterior cavity and 28 diffuse 
forms. In patients with leptomeningitis of the posterior cavity in 
the absence of an engorged papilla of the eyeground, ozone was 
introduced by occipital punctures, in convexital and basal 
leptomeningitis--by lumbar puncture. An introduction of ozone into 
the subarachnoid space was conducted in combination with resorptive 
and general therapy.
