Publicaciones

Desde 2007 cuando se produjo la primera publicación internacional sobre el uso de la punción seca en pacientes neurológicos, poco a poco se han ido produciendo más publicaciones científicas que avalan la efectividad de la técnica.

Aunque la mayoría de publicaciones son con una orientación clínica, también se trabaja en aspectos de ciencia básica y de análisis de costes.

Las publicaciones más destacadas (revistas internacionales de impacto) son:
