Caudal anesthesia appears to be a safe and reliable technique for surgical anesthesia as well as an alternative to narcotics for postoperative analgesia for procedure below umbilicus. From January 1990 to December 1992, we examined the trend and distribution of the 1038 cases of caudal anesthesia retrospectively according to year, age, surgieal department, type of operation, operation time, local anesthetics and suecess rate. Annual numbers of caudal anesthesia increased with years and the first decade of life was the greatest number. The most common department and operation time were general surgery and 30~60 minutes. 2% or 1% lidocaine with epinephrine was the major local anesthetics used during caudal anesthesia and overall success rate was 95.5%.
