Caudal block technique remains as the most popular regional anesthetic choice for the pediatric population since its first description in 1933 for pediatric urological interventions. This technique could provide exquisite analgesia during surgery, likewise in the postoperative period after infraumbilical surgeries. Caudal continues to essentially reduce systemic anesthetic and analgesic requirements, thus conceive a better postoperative outcome. Ropivacaine is a safe and effective local anesthetic agent which provides prolonged postoperative analgesia with significantly minor motor blockade following caudal block in pediatric patients undergoing infraumbilical surgeries.
