HYPOTHESIS The combination of suprascapular nerve block (SSNB) and axillary nerve block (ANB) has been reported to provide safe and effective analgesia for arthroscopic shoulder surgery. This study was designed to identify anatomic landmarks of the suprascapular nerve (SSN) and axillary nerve (AN) and to evaluate the effects of SSNB and ANB using the identified landmarks. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 52 cadaveric shoulders and 30 patients in the anatomic and clinical studies… CONTINUE READING
