Spinal anaesthesia is induced by injecting small amounts of local anaesthetic into the cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF).

The injection is usually made in the lumbar spine below the level at which the spinal cord ends (L2).
Spinal anaesthesia is easy to perform and has the potential to provide excellent operationg conditions for surgery below the umbilicus.

so what is contra-indications and the Advantages of Spinal Anaesthesia?
