Abstract

Background: The dosage of local anaesthetic and the time the patient must be kept in the lateral decubitus position for a unilateral spinal anaesthesia is not known. The aim of this study was to determine the ideal dosage of hyperbaric bupivacaine and the time required for the lateral decubitus position for a unilateral spinal block.
