Abstract
Background: Post dural puncture headache (PDPH) is a serious complication of spinal anaesthesia and incidence is more particularly in parturient.

Aims & Objective: The present study was designed to investigate the use of 27 Gauge (G) spinal needle for spinal anaesthesia in Caesarean section in terms of success and PDPH rate.

Material and Methods: We included total 50 female patients of aged 20-40 years old, were administered spinal anaesthesia with 27G Quincke spinal needle for Caesarean section by same investigator having enough experience. Redirections and attempts for lumbar puncture, success rates of spinal anaesthesia and PDPH were recorded.

Results: We succeeded in 49 patients (98%) to administer spinal anaesthesia. The mean attempt and redirections for lumbar puncture were 1.1 and 1.24 respectively. We found PDPH in 1 patient (2%), which was mild in severity and subsided within two days.

Conclusion: Spinal anaesthesia using a 27G Quincke spinal needle, in experienced hands can have successful spinal block with reduced PDPH rates in patients undergoing Caesarean section.

Key words: Spinal Anaesthesia; 27G Quincke Spinal Needle; Post Dural Puncture Headache; Caesarean Section
