Abstract: Intrathecal clonidine is being extensively evaluated as an alternative to neuraxial opioids for control of pain and has been proven to be a potent analgesic. It is used in combination with opioids and local anaesthetics in labour analgesia and orthopaedic surgery. However, there is still dearth of studies for using intrathecal clonidine for postoperative analgesia in lower abdominal surgeries. Pre anaesthetic check-up was carried out pre operatively with a detailed history, general physical examination and systemic examination. Airway assessment and spinal column examination were done. Majority of patients in the both the groups belonged to the group 26 to 55 years. Samples were age matched. The number of males and females in each group was same (n=30) and samples in both groups were matched with respect to sex. Majority of female patients in the both the groups belonged to the group 160 to 170 cms and males 171 to 175 cms, Samples were height matched.
