Spinal anaesthesia and epidural anaesthesia

The most common anaesthetic procedures

We employ spinal anaesthesia and epidural anaesthesia for operations on the lower extremities. Here, the anaesthetic is injected into the spinal canal in the area of the lumbar spine.

After a short time, the legs and lower body become warm and insensitive. With this procedure, further administration of anaesthetics is not necessary. However, often the patient does not want to be conscious during the operation, so that administration of further medication enables him or her to sleep easily.

These methods are very important for patients with lung diseases, as the patient does not breathe independently in these cases. In addition, epidural catheter anaesthesia is nowadays an important feature of anaesthesia for major stomach operations. The advantages are rapid recovery and fast restoration of the bowel function.
