What is Epidural Anesthesia?
This type of anesthesia involves injection of local anesthetic into the epidural space located at the sacro-coccygeal junction or the first intercoccygeal junction. Other than local anesthetic, other appropriate drugs can be administered too if necessary.
The block is used to produce analgesia of the perineum, tail, pelvic viscera and genitalia. Routinely is used for perineal reconstruction, embryotomy, retraction of the uterine cervix, for suturing tears in the vulva or perineum, reduction of uterine prolapse etc.
