Abstract: The modifying effect of low spinal anaesthesia on hyperglycaemic and haemodynamic response to surgery in 22 insulin dependent diabetic patients (IDDM) was studied. No significant alterations from the preoperatiue values of blood glucose levels, arterial blood pressure, and ECG pattern were noticed during surgery. These studies indicate the possible aduantages of conducting surgery in diabetic patients under regional anaesthesia.
