The Editor,

Sir,

Total spinal anaesthesia, with concomitant symptoms of hypotension and hypoventilation, is a rare but life-threatening complication of epidural block, which is usually abrupt. Here, we reported an unexpected case of delayed and extensive spinal block following epidural anaesthesia.

Synopsis: 
General-epidural anaesthesia can stabilize perioperative haemodynamics, reduce the consumption of general anaesthesia and simultaneously shorten extubation time, indicating that it is a feasible and ideal anaesthetic method at present.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: The current study aims to explore the effects of general-epidural anaesthesia (GEA) on the perioperative haemodynamics in patients with myasthenia gravis (MG), as well as their extubation time.
