Abstract

Background: Due to limited study in our region the present study was conducted with the aims of study the incidence of PDPH with 25 and 26 gauges needles.

Methods: In the hospital based prospective study of 100 subjects of ASA grade I and II ranging from 18 to 45 years who underwent lower segment caesarean section under spinal anesthesia were taken into consideration.

Results: In present study, incidence of PDPH in 25 gauze needles was 3.33% and in 26 gauze needles was 5.00%.

Conclusion: Post dural puncture headache is directly related to the size of the spinal needle used. The study concluded that the incidence of post dural puncture headache can be reduced to minimum with the use of small sized needles
