Bloc interscalénique

Interscalene block for necrotising fasciitis surgery in ASA IV patient

INTRODUCTION

Regional anaesthesia is presented as an alternative to general anaesthesia offering better control of postoperative pain and a shorter anaesthetic recovery time, although not without complications. These benefits are of great importance in patients with high comorbidity where general anaesthesia may pose a high risk.

The brachial plexus block at interscalene level is one of the most commonly used techniques for upper limb surgery.
