Ultrasound-guided perineural circumferential median nerve block with and without prior dextrose 5% hydrodissection: a prospective randomized double-blinded noninferiority trial.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Ultrasound-guided perineural peripheral nerve block using a hydrodissection technique may reduce the risk of accidental intravascular local anesthetic (LA) injection. In this prospective randomized double-blind study, we tested the hypothesis that median nerve block effectiveness is not reduced when circumferential perineural hydrodissection with… (More)
