AbstractFor decades, lignocaine was the local anaesthetic of choice for spinal anaesthesia in ambulatory surgeries. Its advantages are rapid onset of action and good motor block manifested as good muscle relaxation. Its use has become limited because of transient neurologic symptoms and cauda equina syndrome following intrathecal injection. After obtaining the approval of scientific, ethics committee and written informed consent, a total of 100 patients undergoing elective lower limb surgeries under spinal anaesthesia were selected. Patients were explained before operative procedure. Pre-anaesthetic check- up was carried out preoperatively with a detailed history, general physical examination and systemic examination. Airway assessment and spinal column examination was done. In the present study it was observed that there was a statistically difference in the bromage score between groups, score 2 was significantly higher in group II, score 3 was significantly higher in group I p < 0.05. In the present study it was observed that Mean time (in minutes) to pass urine was significantly lower in group I than compared to group II p <0.05.
