PMID:  14740599     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Kinking of an epidural catheter with resultant failure to inject drug is a complication of lumbar epidural analgesia. Here, we report a case of kinking of epidural catheter 1 cm proximal to its tip after 20 days of insertion. It was inserted to a female for pain relief, suffering from carcinoma of the cervix.
