Resumen

El drenaje lumbar externo es un procedimiento invasivo de extracción de líquido cefalorraquídeo del espacio espinal cuyo uso se ha incrementado en los últimos años en el contexto de la medicina neurocrítica. Si bien no es recomendado por las guías o consensos internacionales, tiene un lugar en el manejo de algunas situaciones clínicas específicas vinculadas a diferentes tipos de neuroinjuria grave. Se realiza una revisión no sistemática de la literatura, a lo que se suma la experiencia de los autores. Se plantean las principales indicaciones actuales, se detallan las características de su manejo en los distintos escenarios clínicos y se señalan las contraindicaciones y complicaciones del procedimiento.
