Descriptive cross-sectional study to 190 patients underwent to ambulatory surgery was carried out in the surgical unit at "Amalia Simoni" Surgical Clinical Teaching Hospital from April 2004 to April 2006. The selected variables for the study were the age, sex, surgical pathologies and incidence of headache dural postpuncture. Male sex predominated (64.7 %) and the major percentage of the operated was between 36 and 46 years-old, the most frequent operative diagnosis was the inguinal hernia for a 38.42%. We consider that the use of 27 gauge spinal needle with tip of pencil by its minimum incidence in the headache dural postpuncture is recommendable to perform the spinal anesthesia in the ambulatory surgery.
