45 neurologically healthy patients undergoing continuous spinal anaesthesia for hip arthroplasty were randomized to receive intravenous magnesium sulphate (MgSO4) or saline. Over 6 hours, the magnesium concentration in the serum increased in the MgSO4 group and decreased in the saline group. However, both groups demonstrated a decrease in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) magnesium concentration at 2 ...
