Abstract

Caudal anaesthesia is one form of epidural anaesthesia where the local anaesthetic drug is injected in caudal space. It usually blocks the lower most nerve roots from the spinal cord, particularly sacral and lower lumbar roots. Caudal blocks can provide surgical anaesthesia and good postoperative analgesia for perineal operations.
