(Abstracted from Anesth Analg, 121:1290–1294, 2015)

This study was undertaken with the aim of assessing postdural puncture headache (PDPH), pain relief, motor blockade, and success rate of conversion to cesarean delivery anesthesia of a 23-gauge spinal catheter for labor analgesia. Test subjects were administered bupivacaine 0.5%, up to 25 mg, via the catheter, along with 20-μg fentanyl for cesarean delivery, as needed.
