The Use of Ultrasound in Planned Cesarean Delivery Under Spinal Anesthesia for Patients Having Nonprominent Anatomic Landmarks

Celik, M., Yeksan, A.N., Dostbil, A., Golboyu, B.E., Baysal, P.K., Aksoy, M., Ahiskalioglu, A., Celik, E.C., Ince, I., Alici, H.A., Ekinci, M.
(J Clin Anesth. 2017;37:82–85) Ultrasound (US) guidance for neuraxial procedures is simple, noninvasive, safe, quick, and relatively risk-free. However, there are limited data in the literature about US guidance for neuraxial injections. Consequently, the authors of the present study compared the conventional landmark method with US-guided spinal anesthesia in women undergoing cesarean delivery where spinous processes and interspinous spaces were not prominent on physical examination.
