Upper limb surgeries are mostly performed under peripheral blocks such as the brachial block. Peripheral nerve blocks not only provide intraoperative anaesthesia, but also extend analgesia in the post-operative period without any systemic side-effects.
* where brachial block was attempted but not successful, which may be owing to obesity, edema, disorientation, or any other reason; and
Certain potential factors that might contribute to diaphragmatic paresis following infraclavicular brachial block may be considered.
This potential advantage should be confirmed by a clinical trial comparing local anaesthetic plasma level and systemic toxicity in uraemic patients undergoing radiocephalic fistula construction under selective nerve blocks versus brachial block (5,6).
A significant difference exists between various local anaesthetics like Lignocaine, Mepivacaine, Bupivacaine in terms of onset times, total duration and safety profile when used in Brachial Block. Ropivacaine and Levobupivacaine are newer long acting amide local anaesthetics found to be equally efficacious to Bupivacaine, but with a better safety profile owing to their varying CC/CNS ratios.
The study was carried out to compare hemodynamic, sedative, sensory and motor effects of Ropivacaine alone and Ropivacaine along with Dexmedetomidine in Supraclavicular Brachial Block in upper limb surgery.
[13] observed no significant changes in vital parameter when studied 0.5% ropivacaine and 0.5% bupivacaine for axillary brachial block.
