    The incidence of caesarean section (C/S) is increasing up to 40% even in many developed countries [1]. General and regional anesthesia techniques are used for providing anesthesia in C/S. Epidural anesthesia ensures better control of sensory level as compared to spinal anesthesia and provides better postoperative analgesia. However, it is easier and faster to perform spinal anesthesia. It may produce more intense motor block, and as the amount of local anesthetic is lower, there is less risk for systemic toxicity [2]. On the other hand, post puncture headache is a common complication following spinal anesthesia.
