In this review, we discuss transnasal sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block: a new, simple and minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of post-dural puncture headache (PDPH) by applying local anaesthesia through the patient's nose to the nasopharynx. PDPH is a severe and disabling complication sometimes caused by lumbar puncture or unintentional dural puncture. Current treatment includes epidural blood patch, which is an invasive and resource-demanding procedure with the potential of causing severe complications such as infection and paralysis. SPG block seems to be effective and may ease and improve the treatment of PDPH.
