epidural for AAA

  1. What is the highest level of epidural you'll place for optimal coverage for open AAA repair? What about open aorto-bifem? Having a discussion at work and wondered what other folks had to say.

    Depends on how high the incision will be, but most of these can easily be done with a high lumbar. Even lower for the Aorto-bi-fem.
