Combined spinal epidural anaesthesia
While epidural and spinal blockades are well established regional anaesthetic techniques, combined spinal-epidural anaesthesia (CSE) has become increasingly popular only in last few years. The main reason for this development is the ability of combined spinal-epidural technique to combine the fast onset of spinal block with the possibility to prolong the regional block both intra- and postoperatively.
