BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Glucose is a common component of anesthetic solutions used for spinal anesthesia. However, its possible contribution to recent injuries occurring with spinal anesthesia has not been adequately addressed. Accordingly, the present studies compare the functional and morphologic effects of intrathecally administered glucose with those(More)
BACKGROUND Although there is a considerable difference in the number of clinical reports of neurologic injury between spinal anesthesia and other regional techniques, there are no animal data concerning a difference in the local anesthetic neurotoxicity between intrathecal and epidural administration. In the current study, the functional and morphologic(More)
