Nerve stimulation is considered by many to be the current 'gold standard' for locating peripheral nerves. Thirteen nerve stimulators were subjected to a battery of tests performed by two independent observers under standardised conditions using a digital oscilloscope, a calibrated resistance and a novel scoring system. Individual scores were assigned for(More)

To determine whether, as patients, French anaesthesiologists prefer regional anaesthesia, like their North American colleagues, they were all mailed a questionnaire which submitted 2 different scenarios. Scenario A concerned emergency surgery for an open fracture to the right tibia, the patient-cum-anaesthetist having a full stomach. Scenario B was the(More)
The advantages and disadvantages of both general and local or regional anaesthesia for knee surgery are presented and the patient characteristics enumerated. Regional anaesthesia reduces the frequency of postoperative thrombo-embolic accidents, diminishes blood-loss and permits good postoperative analgesia. Thus it seems to achieve better results in respect(More)
The physiological basis of neurostimulation is recalled and its use for the placement of needles for neural blockade described. After an account of available equipment, the author gives his reasons for preferring some of it. Based on experience gained with more than ten thousand cases, a protocol for using neurostimulation to insure close placement of(More)

The "3 in 1" block and the femoral nerve block are widely used for lower limb surgery and postoperative analgesia. Whether these blocks are in fact a same regional block with two different names or represent definitively two different blocks remains controversial. A large number of anatomical as well as functional variations of the lumbar plexus have been(More)
Brachial plexus blocks for upper extremity surgery: what are the preferred techniques? Brachial plexus anaesthesia for all types of upper extremity surgical procedures cannot be adequately achieved with a single technique. At least, two approaches are required: above the clavicle, Winnie's interscalene brachial plexus block, using a neurostimulator, has(More)
