A Prospective Evaluation of Iodinated Contrast Flow Patterns in Caudal Epidurography With Intentional Lateral Caudal Approach

2014-08-27 03:13:14 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Caudal epidural block is useful not only for regional anesthesia of low abdominal, perineal area or lower extremities but for relieving acute or chronic pain of low back and lower extremities. Recently, there were some reports that there was a difference of the contrast flow pattern during lumbar epidural block according to a location of needle tip in the lumbar epidural space. Therefore, the investigators hypothesize that there is a difference of contrast flow pattern in caudal epidurography when a needle is inserted with intentionally lateral direction.

The injection of autologous blood into the epidural space either as a prophylactic treatment immediately following an epidural puncture or for treatment of headache as a result of an epidural puncture.

The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.
