The Effect of Spinal Flexion in the Lateral Decubitus Position on the Unilaterality During Spinal Anesthesia
Not Provided

For unilateral spinal block, spinal local anesthetics should take effect on the spinal nerves of one side. With full flexion of the spine, the cauda equina becomes tightened and hangs in the middle of the subarachnoid space. This study was performed to assess if flexion of the vertebral column facilitates unilateral spinal anesthesia.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Spinal Anesthesia
  • Other: lateral decubitus position with full spinal flexion
    The patients maintained the lateral decubitus position with the hips and back fully flexed for 15 minutes.
  • Other: lateral decubitus position without spinal flexion
    the patients are allowed to straighten their flexed hips and back to obtain the normal lordotic curvature of spinal column
