Abstract

Caudal epidural block (CEB) is a reliable and effective technique commonly used in pain practice. Having accurate knowledge of sacral anatomy and its anatomical variations is very important for avoiding complications, especially as may occur during dural puncture. This study was undertaken to delineate the anatomical features of the sacrococcygeal region relevant to dural sac (DS) puncture.
