Ultrasound Guided Low Approach To Interscalene Brachial Plexus Block "Spinal Anaesthesia of The Upper Extremity"

Darshana Shah*, Shruti Shah**, Sejal Shelat***, Karthic Ekambaram****, Tirth Patel*****.

Abstract
Background: Interscalene Brachial plexus block is not widely used these days due to its complications and it is not appropriate in upper limb surgeries because it does not affect the lower trunk (C8−T1, ulnar nerve) of the brachial plexus. Methods: A low approach, ultrasound-guided interscalene brachial plexus block (LISB) was performed on one hundred and twelve patients undergoing surgery of the upper extremities. The patients were assessed after the block for the degree of block in each nerve and muscle as well as for any complications. Results: The patients were assessed after the block for the degree of block in each nerve and muscle as well as for any complications. We observed complete sensory and motor block in all the nerves in all the 112 patients. None of the patients received additional analgesics, and none experienced complications. Conclusions: The present study confirmed the achievement of an appropriate sensory and motor block in the upper extremities, including the ulnar nerve with no complications.

Key words: Interscalene brachial plexus block; Ultrasoundguided; Upper limb surgery

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
