Brachial plexus blocks have some advantages, but also have some disadvantages as well. As with all nerve blocks, having to wait sometime for an effective block, sometimes failure to achiev...
The doses of local anesthetics can be decreased with the use of ultrasound guidance. In case of using mixture solutions the benefits and drawbacks are controversial. The plasma concentrati...
This prospective, randomized, double blind study aims to determine the optimal volume for adequate sensorial and motor blockade following an infraclavicular block. Patients will be randomi...
The retroclavicular approach for brachial plexus anesthesia requires an optimal angle between the needle and the ultrasound beam. Retroclavicular approach has already been proven effective...
In this study, the primary objective was to estimate the minimum effective volume of bupivacaine 0.5% resulting in successful block in 50% of patients (MEV50) for ultrasound-guided retrocl...
To compare the effectiveness of supraclavicular and infraclavicular approaches to brachial plexus block for elbow surgery.
We aimed to examine to what extent a lateral infraclavicular brachial plexus block affected the axillary and the suprascapular nerve. We included patients undergoing hand surgery anaesthetised with a ...
We recently showed that the novel combination of a superficial cervical plexus block, a suprascapular nerve block, and the lateral sagittal infraclavicular brachial plexus block (LSIB) provides an alt...
To evaluate the perioperative analgesic effects of a transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block with a mixture of lidocaine and bupivacaine administered to cats undergoing ovariectomy.
To measure IOP in animals, it is often necessary to use topical anesthetics. The use of these drugs may cause changes in IOP and interfere with the final results. To address this issue, the effects of...
A local anesthetic that is chemically related to BUPIVACAINE but pharmacologically related to LIDOCAINE. It is indicated for infiltration, nerve block, and epidural anesthesia. Mepivacaine is effective topically only in large doses and therefore should not be used by this route. (From AMA Drug Evaluations, 1994, p168)
A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of procaine but its duration of action is shorter than that of bupivacaine or prilocaine.
A syndrome associated with inflammation of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical features include severe pain in the shoulder region which may be accompanied by MUSCLE WEAKNESS and loss of sensation in the upper extremity. This condition may be associated with VIRUS DISEASES; IMMUNIZATION; SURGERY; heroin use (see HEROIN DEPENDENCE); and other conditions. The term brachial neuralgia generally refers to pain associated with brachial plexus injury. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1355-6)
The large network of nerve fibers which distributes the innervation of the upper extremity. The brachial plexus extends from the neck into the axilla. In humans, the nerves of the plexus usually originate from the lower cervical and the first thoracic spinal cord segments (C5-C8 and T1), but variations are not uncommon.
A blocking of NEURAL CONDUCTION in the network of nerve fibers innervating the UPPER EXTREMITY.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
