Abstract The purpose of this study was to determine current UK anaesthetic practice regarding the use of regional anaesthesia in the management of patients with placenta praevia presenting for Caesarean section. We asked the members of the Obstetric Anaesthetists Association to complete a postal questionnaire in which a range of clinical situations involving varying degrees of placenta praevia were presented. In each case respondents were asked whether they would be willing to use regional anaesthesia. A wide variety of clinical practice was demonstrated. Anaesthetists with two or more obstetric sessions were more willing to use regional anaesthesia for Caesarean section in the presence of placenta praevia in both elective and emergency situations associated with haemorrhage.
