Local anesthetics are the commonest agents used for spinal anesthesia, but their relatively short duration of action may lead to early analgesic intervention in the postoperative period. The objective of the study was to study anesthetic profile of patients undergoing lower limb surgeries. Study was carried out at Narayana Medical Collage Hospital, Nellore from September 2012 to August 2014 among 50 patients undergoing lower limb surgeries. Patients aged 18-60 years, patients undergoing lower limb surgeries and consenting patients were included in the study. All patients were evaluated for history, physical examination and investigations. There is no statistically significant difference between the groups with regard to demographic data. The mean duration of surgery is higher in Group-A compared to Group - B. There is a significant difference between groups with regard to onset of sensory analgesia, with Group A having a rapid onset compared to B. There is significant difference between the groups in total duration of Sensory Analgesia with Group A having longer duration compared to Group B.
