Abstract

Nineteen panangiographies under caudal epidural block were performed in children between 9 months and 13 years. It is stated that the sympatholytic action of caudal epidural block diminishes the risk of circulatory disturbances in the catheterised femoral artery. The performance of caudal block in children is easy and safe. The circulation in the affected limb returned to normal in one child during 3 hours, in the remaining 18 during 1 hour.
