To compare the efficacy of a conventional fluoroscopy-guided epidural nerve block and an ultrasound (US)-guided intercostal nerve block in patients with thoracic herpes zoster (HZ).
This article was published in the following journal.

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ultrasound-guided (UG) versus fluoroscopy-guided (FG) percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL).
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of ultrasound guided superficial cervical plexus (SCP) block versus greater auricular nerve (GAN) block for on postoperative tympanomastoid surgery a...
The lateral and anterior approaches for proximal sciatic nerve (SN) block can be used in patients lying supine. We assume that the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve (PFCN) is simultaneously blocked mo...
To investigate the effect and superiority of fluoroscopy-guided intraarticular shoulder injection (IAI), suprascapular nerve block (SSNB), and combination treatment in hemiplegic shoulder pain (HSP).
Ultrasound-guided nerve blocks are effective; however, their use in the abdominal wall is reportedly associated with a risk of abdominal organ injury. Laparoscopic-guided nerve blocks are thought to b...
The purpose of this study is to compare the proximal intercostal block to the more medial (classic) ultrasound-guided paravertebral block. The investigators hypothesize that the proximal i...
This study will compare ESP block plus patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) to intercostal nerve block plus PCA as post-operative pain control for patients having video-assisted thorascopic ...
The main objectives of the trial are the efficacy and safety of intercostal nerve block in the midaxillary line versus paravertebral block, both guided by ultrasound in patients scheduled ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of preemptive effect of rectus sheath block (RSB) and intercostal nerve block (ICNB) on postoperative visceral pain in laparo...
Forefoot surgery includes bunion surgery and similar reconstructive bone cutting surgery and is very painful. Local anaesthetic nerve blocks have been used for many years to help alleviate...
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.
The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with frequency-shifted ultrasound reflections produced by moving targets (usually red blood cells) in the bloodstream along the ultrasound axis in direct proportion to the velocity of movement of the targets, to determine both direction and velocity of blood flow. (Stedman, 25th ed)
The ventral rami of the thoracic nerves from segments T1 through T11. The intercostal nerves supply motor and sensory innervation to the thorax and abdomen. The skin and muscles supplied by a given pair are called, respectively, a dermatome and a myotome.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
