The authors present the anaesthetic methods used in case of caesarean sections at the 1st Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Semmelweis University, during the past 15 years (between 1990 and 2005). At this time period, in good accordance with the national trends the number of caesarean sections increased even at our institution. It is also effected by the fact that our clinic; being a referral centre for complicated cases ,pathological pregnancies and premature deliveries arriving with foetuses in utero for further management - provides care for a large number of patients. In the 15 years, studied-the ratio of regional anaesthetic techniques (spinal anaesthesia, epidural anaesthesia) rose progressively, while the number of general anaesthesia cases decreased. According to the authors's view, under proper care and conditions, even in cases of preeclampsia, spinal anaesthesia is an adaptable method. Owing to the changes in caesarean section delivery anaesthesia, there are less complications nowadays whereas the safety with the use of the regional techniques is increasing. Of all the available techniques however, spinal anaesthesia carries the highest preference.
