Epidural Anesthesia

Epidural anesthesia is a type of neuraxial anesthesia; local anesthetic (LA) is injected into the epidural space to anesthetize the spinal nerve roots that traverse the space. Epidural anesthesia is used for anesthesia of abdominal, pelvic, and lower extremity procedures and, less commonly, thoracic procedures. It may be used to supplement general anesthesia for thoracic, abdominal, and pelvic procedures and for postoperative analgesia following these procedures. The usual technique involves siting a catheter in the epidural space. LA solution and adjuvants are administered through the catheter, both to initiate and maintain anesthesia for the duration of the surgical procedure.
