The CSE technique offers many potential advantages over continuous epidural or subarachnoid methods alone, including a reduction in drug dosage, the ability to eliminate motor blockade and to achieve highly selective sensory blockade and optimize analgesia. These features hold great promise for minimizing the hazards and side effects of traditional epidural and subarachnoid techniques. Controversial fears, risks, and pitfalls of the CSE technique and of continuous epidural and subarachnoid methods are debated and discussed.
