The Closed Suction Drain (CSD) system is widely utilized in orthopedic surgeries. However, its side effects have seldom been mentioned. Hereby we report an impressive case of post-operative hemorrhage, which were probably caused by miss-chosen and mal-positioned CSD system. Meanwhile, invasion of vertebral venous plexus should also be taken into consideration when unexpected hemorrhage happened. After adjusting the type and position of the CSD system, this patient healed without any complication.
