Özet

The present study was conducted to examine if preinsertion lumbar ultrasound scanning helps with performance of spinal puncture, as a tool for decreasing the number of puncture attempts and spinal procedure time and increasing the success rate. We hypothesized that ultrasound can facilitate neuraxial blockade, particularly in pregnant women with difficult topographic anatomy.
