Pediatric regional anesthesia is now well-established and has an important place for peri- and postoperative pain control in children. We also need drugs safe and effective for epidural administration; ropivacaine and levobupivacaine seem to offer a wider safety margin in comparison with the old drugs and are able to provide a valid pain control. Various adjuvants can be used in order to potentiate the analgesic duration; clonidine and ketamine are probably among the best drugs.
