Background: Spinal anaesthesia offers safe and comfortable surgery in inguinal hernia repair. Local anaesthetic and opioid combinations are gaining popularity in intrathecal anaesthesia due to many advantages both in terms of providing patient and surgical satisfaction in addition to acceptable complication rates. In this study we aimed to compare different morphine doses added to levobupivacaine for intratechal anesthesia in unilateral inguinal hernia repair.
