The caudal block: The "no turn" technique

Giorgio Ivani, Pasquale De Negri

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The caudal block is an effective technique that is very common and popular in pediatric regional anesthesia. To perform this block safely, good anatomic knowledge and accurate guidelines about techniques and drugs administration must be followed. The usual approach is well-known and often described, but in some cases is not without risks. The "no turn" technique is a very easy approach that reduces these risks and is useful for teaching hospitals that are minimizing the time of the learning curve. In this article, the technique is shown and the doses of local anesthetics and adjuvants are described.
