Randomized, two-arm, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of LIQOSEAL® in reducing CSF leakage following elective cranial Surgery.

Primary Objective

The objective of the study is to clinically assess the safety and effectiveness of LIQOSEAL® as a means of reducing intra- as well as post-operative CSF leakage in patients undergoing elective cranial intradural surgery with a dural closure procedure to show non-inferiority compared to a control group.
