We recently demonstrated the safety of thoracic spinal anesthesia by the study with MRI in 50 patients . In order to verify the incidence of neurological complications in spinal thoracic anesthesia, a study was carried out comparing the two most frequently used needles (Cut vs Point Pencil) in 300 patients divided into two groups of 150 patients, puncture success was observed in all patients with 20 (6.6%) paresthesia with no significant difference between the needles . All paresthesia were transient and no neurologic complications were observed.
