Hand or wrist surgery often requires the use of bony material in order to accomplish any associated reconstructive aspects required for the surgery. The iliac crest is often used as the source of bone for such surgery and harvesting from this site is performed simultaneously with the hand/wrist surgery. In terms of anesthesia, patients typically receive a supraclavicular nerve block for the hand/wrist surgery, and a general anesthestic for the bone graft, though spinal block may also be performed. This study will look at the use of a transversalis fascia plane (TFP) nerve block (ie, to numb the nerves going to the iliac crest) in combination with a general anesthetic to see if post-operative pain and opioid consumption is reduced using the TFP block.

Spasticity following lesions of the central nervous system such as stroke is a major cause of impairment and disability, especially when it affects the upper limb, and can be focally relieved by intra...
Pediatric upper limb surgery requires fine tissue handling in a bloodless surgical field. Standard pneumatic tourniquets are often ineffective in the very young, as they do not fit all limb circumfere...

An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.
The region of the upper limb in animals, extending from the deltoid region to the HAND, and including the ARM; AXILLA; and SHOULDER.
Surgery of the upper jaw bone usually performed to correct upper and lower jaw misalignment.
Distinct regions of mesenchymal outgrowth at both flanks of an embryo during the SOMITE period. Limb buds, covered by ECTODERM, give rise to forelimb, hindlimb, and eventual functional limb structures. Limb bud cultures are used to study CELL DIFFERENTIATION; ORGANOGENESIS; and MORPHOGENESIS.
The region of the upper limb between the metacarpus and the FOREARM.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
