[Clinical–anatomic ground of caudal approach in newborns with surgical pathology].
Lik Sprava. 2014 Mar-Apr;(3-4):99-104
Anatomic research have been done on 20 dead bodies of newborns for updating of caudal block level. For definition of caudal block level it was proved, that injection of coloring agent in volume of 0.5 ml/kg, 1 ml/kg and 1.2 ml/kg promotes reaching middle thoracic, high thoracic and highest level of epidural block. Analysis of hemodynamic and serum cortisol level in 25 newborns with surgical pathology showed the best analgesic effect in 15 newborns, who have got caudal-epidural anesthesia comparably with 10 newborns, who have got traditional multicomponent general anesthesia.
