What Anesthesia Is Used For Amputation Above The Knee?
Tonight, if you want to amputate above the knee for 120 minutes, what anesthesia should you use?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Amputation in the lower extremities is indicated in cases such as severe infections, vascular disorders, tumors, or injuries. Choice of anesthesia in amputation surgery includes general anesthesia or regional anesthesia (spinal, epidural, or nerve block). Both have their respective advantages, but currently more widely used methods of spinal anesthesia because it is known to reduce complaints of chronic pain after amputation. But what is also important is that the selection of the method is based on the doctor's decision from the results of the preoperative examination. Carry out further consultations with the doctor who handles your case.
That's all, hope you can help.
