BACKGROUND Supraclavicular brachial plexus blocks are not common in children because of risk of pneumothorax. However, infraclavicular brachial plexus blocks have been described in paediatric patients both with nerve stimulation and ultrasound (US)-guidance. US-guidance reduces the risk of complications in supraclavicular brachial plexus blocks in adults. OBJECTIVE To compare the success rate, complications and time of performance of US-guided supraclavicular vs infraclavicular brachial… CONTINUE READING
