These operations - in the area of the lower half of the body - should take only up to a maximum of 4 hours. An anesthetic is injected into the epidural space, located in the spinal canal, thus the feeling at the bottom of the body will be taken temporarily "out of action", but the patient gets the whole operation-all with the Geräusche-. It is too stressful for him, can a sedative be administered him.
Here, too, the patient with all of its features, such as oxygen, ECG, blood pressure, etc. is constantly monitored.
It can cause headaches, bruising, possibly a few hours urinary retention.
