Continuous spinal blockade: an old technique revisited.


:In this paper we describe a technique for continuous spinal anesthesia, first described at the turn of the 20th century and long thought to have become obsolete. We discuss reasons for discontinuance and neglect of the technique, as well as its indications, applications, and specific advantages, and we report a significant illustrative case.
