Minimun dosage – maximum effect
IntraLong – the best choice for the continuous technique
Continuous spinal anaesthesia is used particularly in orthopedics and for large-scale tumor operations.
The advantage of this technique is, that immediate and maximum pain relief can be achieved with a minimum amount of anaesthetics. The dose can also be reduced considerably by using the continuous technique for intrathecal therapy with cytostatics in neurology, thus reducing the danger of systemic toxic react ions to a minimum. Fast fading away of the blockade and the option for postoperative pain control are very much appreciated factors in rehabilitation, because therapeutic exercise can commence immediately after the operation.
