|Title:||Subdural spinal haematoma after epidural anaesthesia in a patient with spinal canal stenosis.||Austin Authors:||Chan, M Y L;Lindsay, D A||Affiliation:||Department of Anaesthesia, Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia||Issue Date:||1-Apr-2006||Publication information:||Anaesthesia and Intensive Care; 34(2): 269-75||Abstract:||A 60-year-old male with a past history of T12 fracture had epidural analgesia for a radical prostatectomy. It was unknown prior to epidural insertion that the patient had a canal stenosis at T12 from the previous injury. The patient developed severe bilateral buttock pain after epidural catheter removal. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a spinal subdural haematoma from T10 to L2 with mild cord compression. The patient made a successful recovery with conservative management. Neuraxial blockade should be approached with caution in patients with previous back injury, and only after a thorough assessment has been obtained to exclude spinal canal stenosis.||Gov't Doc #:||16617653||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/10138||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16617653||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Anesthesia, Epidural.adverse effects
