Spinal anesthesia as a complication of brachial plexus block using the posterior approach.

Abstract

IMPLICATIONS In this case report we describe a technique used to provide local analgesia for surgical procedures. Although this technique has a reduced risk of complications, we present a patient who experienced a life-threatening paralysis without loss of consciousness during an attempted brachial plexus block with a posterior approach.
