Abstract

Introduction: Postdural puncture headache is commonly experienced by parturients especially after caesarean delivery under spinal anaesthesia. The objective of our study was to study the incidence of PDPH in pregnant women with low and high body mass index.
Methods: Our study comprised of Group A and Group B of 30 patients each with BMI < 30kg/m2 and > 30kg/m2 respectively undergoing elective caesarean section under spinal anaesthesia.
Results: The study was a prospective randomized study in which incidence of PDPH was higher in patients with low body mass index compared to those with high body mass index.
Conclusion: Incidence of PDPH was higher in patients with low body mass index compared to high body mass index and the difference was statistically significant.
