PURPOSE The success rate for infraclavicular brachial plexus block using nerve stimulation reportedly ranges from 60 to 80%. Ultrasound guidance may be associated with greater success. This study compared ultrasound guided infraclavicular block with a dual motor endpoint nerve stimulation technique. METHODS One hundred three hand surgery patients were randomized to receive either ultrasound-guided (ultrasound group) or dual motor endpoint nerve stimulation (stimulation group) infraclavicular… CONTINUE READING
