Lidocaine in the epidural space, through inhibitory effects upon coagulation, may contribute to inefficacy of epidural autologous blood patch (EBP). This study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of achievable epidural concentrations of lidocaine on blood coagulation as a step in testing this hypothesis. Ex vivo blood coagulation using whole blood (n =(More)
