ABSTRACT
In the last hundred years Continuous Spinal Anaesthesia (CSA) has been in and out of anaesthesiology practice at least three times, and of late the fourth resurgence is around the corner. The practice of CSA has remained controversial mainly because of neurological complications associated with it. HP Dean1 described this technique initially in 1906, about seven years after the first reports of spinal anaesthesia. However it was not accepted into practice till. WT Lennin2 rediscovered it in 1940 and described the procedure by using a special malleable needle for this purpose.
