  Purpose

The effect of Body-mass index (BMI) on requirements of local anesthetics used in spinal anesthesia has not been well established. The investigators tried to quantify the effect of BMI on spinal anesthesia by comparing the median effective dose of intrathecal bupivacaine between two different BMI groups.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • success of spinal anesthesia [ Time Frame: every ten minutes during the surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    a bilateral T12 sensory level to pinprick within 10 min of the intrathecal drug administration with no additional epidural anesthetics required during the surgery


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • time to first request for supplemental analgesia [ Time Frame: every ten minutes during and after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    for failure cases: it is the time of failure for success cases : it is the time of first postoperative pain

Detailed Description:

The effect of BMI on requirements of local anesthetics used in spinal anesthesia has not been well established. The investigators tried to quantify the effect of BMI on spinal anesthesia by comparing the median effective dose (ED50)of intrathecal bupivacaine between two different BMI groups. The investigators determined the ED50 and ED 95 of intrathecal hyperbaric bupivacaine of subjects with BMI below 27.5 kg/m2, and subjects with BMI over 27.5 kg/m2, respectively. By comparing the difference of ED50 and ED95 between the groups, the investigators tried to quantify the effect of BMI on the bupivacaine dose requirement.
