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.

This study explores the potential for a more rapid onset of pain relief when drug administration is performed through the epidural needle, a technique of epidural loading that provides a r...
Color Flow Doppler (CFD) utilizes Doppler information obtained from signals sent to and received from a transducer. This information is color-encoded and then displayed as color on an over...
This was a single-blind, randomized controlled trial. Sixty-six patients who underwent caudal epidural injection were randomized into the vapocoolant spray group or local infiltration grou...
Caudal epidural injections have been commonly performed in patients with low back pain and radiculopathy. Conventional caudal epidural injections, which the needle is advanced into the sac...
Epidural waveform analysis (EWA) provides a simple confirmatory adjunct for loss-of-resistance (LOR): when the needle/catheter tip is correctly positioned inside the epidural space, pressu...
Dural puncture, paraesthesia and vascular puncture are the most common complications of epidural catheter insertion. Their association with variation in midline needle insertion depth is unknown.
Incorrect needle placement during an epidural block causes medical complications such as dural puncture or spinal cord injury. We propose a system combining an optical coherence tomography imaging pro...
Implanted intravenous ports (IPs) are increasingly used in health care. The experience of having IPs accessed can vary a great deal for patients. Successful IP access depends on the experience and ski...
Cerebrospinal fluid cutaneous fistula is a rare but potentially serious complication of epidural analgesia. We report the case of a patient submitted to total knee arthroplasty under subarachnoid bloc...
Intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (IVPCA) with opioids and epidural analgesia (EA) using either continuous epidural administration (CEA) or patient-controlled (PCEA) techniques are popular appr...
The administration of medication by insertion of a tiny needle or catheter into the spinal sac or epidural cavity.
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.
A rare epidural hematoma in the spinal epidural space, usually due to a vascular malformation (CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM VASCULAR MALFORMATIONS) or TRAUMA. Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma is a neurologic emergency due to a rapidly evolving compressive MYELOPATHY.
Usage of a single needle among two or more people for injecting drugs. Needle sharing is a high-risk behavior for contracting infectious disease.
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
