Cervical epidural pressure measurement: comparison in the prone and sitting positions.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The hanging drop technique is used for identifying the cervical epidural space, using its negative pressure. However, it is doubtful whether the epidural space intrinsically exhibits a negative pressure. We designed this study to test the hypothesis that the cervical epidural pressure (CEP) is significantly higher in the prone position than in… (More)
