This study evaluates the incidence of intravascular injection during cervical transforaminal epidural block using blunt needle, compared to the sharp needle. The investigators will performed cervical transforaminal epidural block using blunt-type block needle in half of participants or sharp-type block needle in the other half.
Cervical transforaminal epidural block is an effective treatment option of radiating pain. There are potential risks associated with transforaminal epidural block such as infection, dural puncture, bleeding, and intravascular injection. Although the risk is low, intravascular injection should be carefully monitored because intravascular injection of particulate steroids can cause fatal neurologic deficits such as spinal infarction and cerebral infarction.
The incidence of intravascular injection during transforaminal epidural block with real time fluoroscopy guidance depends on spinal level. The previous studies using real time fluoroscopy demonstrated that the incidence of intravascular injection of cervical transforaminal epidural block is higher than that of lumbosacral transforaminal epidural block.
In this study, therefore, the investigators investigate the incidence of intravascular injection during cervical transforaminal epidural block using blunt needle, compared to the sharp needle.

The primary aim of this study is to investigate the difference of the sensorial block success rate of the blocks. Secondary aim is to investigate the difference of the needle tip and shaft...
In this study, we will be comparing two approaches to the femoral block. The first or classical approach and one that is the most popular in our institution is used by combining ultrasound...
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...
Patients will be randomized to one of two groups: 1. Supraclavicular group: supraclavicular brachial plexus block 2. Retroclavicular group: retroclavicular brachial plexus block Prim...
The Pecs block (pectoral nerves block) is an easy and reliable superficial block inspired by the infraclavicular block approach and the intercostal abdominis plane blocks . Many additives ...
Paroxysmal atrioventricular (A-V) block is relatively rare, and due to its transient nature, it is often under recognized. It is often triggered by atrial, junctional or ventricular premature beats, a...
In this paper we adopt molecular-dynamics simulations to study the amphiphilic AB block-copolymer (BCP) mediated nanoparticles (NPs) dispersion in polymer nanocomposites (PNCs), with the A-block being...
Interscalene block provides optimal shoulder surgery analgesia, but concerns over its associated risks have prompted the search for alternatives. Suprascapular block was recently proposed as an inters...
Laparoscopic-assisted Tranversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) Block Versus Ultrasonography-guided Transversus Abdominis Plane Block in Postlaparoscopic Cholecystectomy Pain Relief: Randomized Controlled Trial.
Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block for postoperative analgesia in laparoscopic cholecystectomy is usually given under ultrasound guidance. Laparoscopic-assisted TAP block has been suggested as an...
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.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).
A form of heart block in which the electrical stimulation of HEART VENTRICLES is interrupted at either one of the branches of BUNDLE OF HIS thus preventing the simultaneous depolarization of the two ventricles.
Impaired impulse conduction from HEART ATRIA to HEART VENTRICLES. AV block can mean delayed or completely blocked impulse conduction.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
