Core Tip Cutaneous silent period (CSP) is an oligo¬synaptic spinal inhibitory reflex. The results of our study show that intrathecal administration of levobupivacaine with added clonidine, in comparison to levobupivacaine alone, yields a significantly shorter CSP and a significantly longer CSP latency during block regression following subarachnoid block (SAB) application. Accordingly, we can conclude that during SAB regression, a small dose of intrathecally administered clonidine ameliorates the inhibitory tonus and accelerates the conduction in the oligosynaptic spinal circuit.
