Hi Selma...
I also know Dr. Spetzler at Barrow Nurrogical Institute here in Phoenix, AZ is also conducting a study on different types of Dura patches. Not sure of the particulars, just thought I would mention it. Lisa

  Thanks Lisa and for the support of the facility as it is good to have first hand experience with a place to help show others it is a good place to go...even if it is a trial.

What is great about this is they will be using different patches as well as harvested ones....interesting to see the results of this one.
