Abstract

In summary, we have reported a patient who developed symptoms compatible with TNS after spinal anesthesia with a clinically recommended dose of tetracaine. The combination of the lithotomy position and epidural mepivacaine prior to spinal tetracaine may have had a synergistic effect on the symptoms. Careful consideration of the total local anesthetic dose at relatively short intervals may be needed during combined spinal and epidural anesthesia.
