Opioid therapy was used in three patients (14%). The complications observed in this group were a recurrence of the disc herniation after 18 months requiring surgical treatment in one patient, a seroma that resolved spontaneously with complete recovery in one patient, and a dural tear that resolved with conservative treatment prolonging hospital stay to 48 hours in one patient.

Use of dexmedetomidine for regional anaesthesia a. Epidural dexmedetomidine at a dose of 100µg decreased the incidence of postoperative shivering. (87) b. Intrathecal dexmedetomidine at a dose of 3µg causes significant prolongation of sensory and motor blockade. (88) c. Addition of 0.5µg/kg body weight of dexmedetomidine to lidocaine for intravenous regional anaesthesia improves the quality of anaesthesia and perioperative analgesia. (89) 3. Use in monitored anaesthesia care (MAC): Dexmedetomidine confers arousable sedation with ease of orientation, anxiolysis, mild analgesia without respiratory depression.
