The pharmacokinetics of epidurally administered medication has become the topic of several research studies, yet drug concentration at the epidural space has not been quantified. The analysis has been undertaken to describe the epidural, cerebrospinal fluid, and plasma pharmacokinetics of epidurally administered opioids on the grounds of measurement of chemical concentration at all these bubbles following epidural administration.

The findings suggest that the spinal column pharmacokinetics of those drugs are somewhat complex and, in a few manners, counter intuitive. Additionally, the bioavailability of both opioids from the cerebrospinal fluid and also epidural space depends chiefly with their hydrophobicity, using less anti inflammatory drugs using greater bioavailability.
