The objective of this study was to evaluate the benefits efficacy and safety of local cervical plexus block in the performance of carotid endarterectomy in the absence of sophisticated monitoring without compromising patient's or surgeon's comfort at work.
Superficial cervical plexus block was performed by infiltrating 0.
General anaesthesia is most commonly used, but cervical plexus block
and local anaesthesia with hypnosis have been used successfully in adults.
Superficial or deep cervical plexus block for carotid endarterectomy: a systematic review of complications.
Prospective, randomized comparison of deep or superficial cervical plexus block for carotid endarterectomy surgery.
Comparison of analgesic efficacy between bilateral superficial and combined (superficial and deep) cervical plexus block
administered before thyroid surgery.
Cervical plexus block
has also been effectively used in other surgeries like carotid end arterectomy, lymph node biopsy (or) excision.
Under aseptic precautions after local infiltration of skin with local anesthetic solution, left deep Cervical Plexus block
achieved by injecting 15 ml of combined 1% Lignocaine and 0.
In our literature search, there was only one previous report on the use of a deep cervical plexus block
for surgical decompression in a patient with Ludwig's angina and severe airway compromise (3).
We describe a new technique for achieving a deep cervical plexus block
using a portable vascular access ultrasound scanner (Site ~ Rite[R] II, Bard Access Systems, Pittsburgh, PA).
