<br />Summary
<br />
<br />Injections in the epidural space are commonly performed in veterinary medicine.
<br />To date, in dog ultrasound-guided epidural injection technique has not been described and herein our aim was to assess this technique.
<br />A cross sectional anatomic atlas of the lumbosacral region and ex-vivo ultrasound images were obtained in two cadavers to describe the ultrasound anatomy of the region and to identify the landmarks. Eighteen cadavers were used to establish two different variations of an ultrasound-guided technique, using spinal needles or epidural catheters. The technique was then performed in three cadavers in situations, considered similar to the daily clinical activity. Contrast medium was injected and a computed tomography examination of the region was performed to assess the success of this technique. The anatomic landmarks used to carry out the procedure were the seventh lumbar vertebra, the iliac wings and the first sacral vertebra. The target for the needle placement was the vertebral canal of the lumbosacral space, visualized in a parasagittal plane, which displayed a trapezoid-shaped echogenic image and the insertion of the spinal needle or epidural catheter was guided and followed in real time, until it reached the vertebral canal.
<br />In conclusion, we described the feasibility of an ultrasound-guided epidural access technique in dog.
