A Clinical Comparative Study of Intrathecal 0.5% Hyperbaric Bupivacaine in Combination with 50 μg and 75 μg of Clonidine in Lower Abdominal Surgeries under Spinal Anaesthesia --- A Randomized Control Study
Spinal anaesthesia is a safe, reliable technique providing surgical anaesthesia.. Limited duration of action appears to be one of its downsides. Clonidine as intrathecal adjuvant has been shown to be effective and safe,  prolongs the duration of local anaesthetic action and reduces the dose of drug. This study was conducted to compare intrathecal 0.5% hyperbaric bupivacaine in combination with 50 µg and 75 µg of clonidine in lower abdominal surgeries under spinal anaesthesia.
