Loco-regional anesthesia bargains obvious benefits in just about all branches of surgical procedure because it ideal anesthesia with lengthy postoperative analgesia. additionally, new medicines and methods are making sure consistent development, and some time past decade the appearance of ultrasound-guided local anesthesia has performed a key function through permitting direct visualization of all anatomic constructions thinking about nearby blocks. together with electrostimulation, it has considerably elevated the good fortune expense of loco-regional anesthesia.

This publication, comprising sixteen chapters and greater than one hundred forty colour illustrations, presents particular insurance of the options at present hired in top limb anesthesia. It opens through reviewing the anatomy of the brachial plexus and the topographic anatomy because it is of the maximum value for anesthesiologists to have a deep wisdom of anatomy regardless of the help provided via new instruments. accordingly some of the ideas, together with supraclavicular, infraclavicular, and axillary brachial plexus blocks, peripheral blocks, and intravenous local anesthesia, are mentioned extensive, with due cognizance to capability issues. updated details can be supplied at the position of ultrasound, and a complete bankruptcy is dedicated to ultrasound-guided interscalene and supraclavicular blocks. The booklet might be a useful studying instrument for college students and a very good reduction in day-by-day medical perform for anesthesiologists.

Example text

Alemanno and E. Egarter Vigl In our anatomical description of the innervation of the supraclavicular region, we cannot neglect to make some mention, however brief, of the cervical plexus.

A second efferent group forms the so-called vertebral nerve or, better, vertebral plexus, following the artery of the same name and insinuating itself with its branches in the foramina of the transverse processes of the cervical vertebrae. A third group, with an inferomedial course, forms the inferior cardiac nerve (cardioaccelerator) after connecting via an anastomosis to the middle cardiac nerve. This should come as no surprise because in the embryo, the heart is originally located in the cervical region and only later migrates into the thorax followed by its own innervation.

The latter is bounded by the lower border of the omohyoid muscle, by the posterior border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle and by the posterior edge of the clavicle. This second triangle is much more important because it corresponds to the neurovascular bundle of the supraclavicular fossa (brachial plexus, subclavian artery). Occasionally, the omoclavicular triangle proves to be virtual, as the omohyoid muscle is partly hidden behind the clavicle (Fig. 3). In this case, the muscle needs to be removed if the anatomical pathologist wishes to expose the neurovascular bundle or displaced by the surgeon attempting to reach the subclavian artery.
