Probably, the most frequently used method to further prolong post-operative analgesia following caudal block
is to add different adjuvant drugs to the local anaesthetic solution.
The patients in Group C received caudal block
with bupivacaine 0.
Methods: One hundred and ninety patients scheduled for transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy were randomized equally into Group-A who received caudal block
(20 ml 1.
Ultrasound-guided ilioinguinal/lilohipogastric nerve blocks versus caudal block
for postoperative analgesia in children undergoing unilateral groin surgery.
Patients were divided into two groups: DPNB for group I and caudal block
for group II, using 0.
Objective: To compare the efficacy of caudal block
alone with caudal block
plus intravenous dexamethasone for postoperative analgesia in children undergoing orchidopexy under general anaesthesia.
The findings reported here are of particular importance as far as caudal block
, CSI and spine surgery are concerned.
Use of continuous caudal block
to relieve lowerextremity ischemia caused by vasculitis in a child with meningococcemia.
The main disadvantage with single shot caudal block
with plain local anaesthetic is its short duration of action.
Dexamethasone in combination with caudal block
has been demonstrated to be effective in postoperative management of orchiopexy.
1] Unfortunately, motor blockade resulting from caudal block
may be a cause of distress to children in the postoperative period and could lead to delayed hospital discharge.
In a another study of patients undergoing paediatric groin surgery, the addition of an US-guided ilioinguinal nerve block to a single-shot caudal block
decreased pain scores (59).
True (A) or false (B)-fill in only block A or B: Caudal block
is easy to learn and commonly used in anorectal surgery.
Patients were randomly divided into two groups of twenty patients each for caudal block
The time interval from caudal block
to the first analgesic consumption was considered as analgesia time" and recorded.
