Author(s): Dr. Subhash Banerji
Abstract: Background: Continuous spinal anaesthesia (CSA) is an under‑utilized anaesthetic technique suitable for surgeries of the lower extremity, perineum and lower abdomen. The present study was conducted to determine the use of continuous spinal anaesthesia in patients. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 126 patients with American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) physical status grade I or II who underwent any surgery. Their demographic profiles, type and duration of surgery were analyzed. The success of CSA, technical evaluation and complications were assessed. Results: Out of 126 patients, males were 62 and females were 64. Comorbidities were hypertension seen in 45, diabetes mellitus in 40, IHD in 20 and CVA in 15. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Type of surgery was knee in 48, foot in 32, hip in 35 and femur in 11. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). 120 showed successful treatment and 6 had failure of anesthesia. Conclusion: CSA is a useful anaesthetic technique and can be considered as substitute for other anesthetic solutions. There was higher success rate.
