Abstract

Spinal opiate analgesia is based on the local access of intrathecally or epidurally administered opiates to opiate receptors in the spinal cord. The first international meeting on this new method of pain treatment took place in 1980, at the World Congress of Anesthesiologists in Hamburg [19]. Within a short time, the theoretical basis of spinal opiate analgesia had been extensively documented [16], and in just a few years, this method of combating pain has spread worldwide.
