The definition of failed brachial plexus block
is accepted when complying with anyone of the following: (1) Onset of general anesthesia (GA) after the surgical incision; (2) Use of opioid intravenous analgesics greater or equal to 100 ^g of fentanyl or its equivalent following the surgical incision; (3) Rescue peripheral nerve block (second block after completion of the initial block); or (4) Surgeon infiltration of local anesthetic agents into the surgical site.
The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of tramadol - ropivacaine combination on onset, quality, duration of anaesthesia and postoperative analgesia with ropivacaine plain in supraclavicular brachial plexus block
for upper limb surgery.
5% lignocaine solution in axillary brachial plexus block
prolongs the duration of sensory blockade significantly.
Regional anesthesia via a brachial plexus block
provides patients with prolonged postoperative pain relief, management that may allow for early mobilization, and permits the patient to proceed with earlier and more intensive physiotherapy following operative intervention.

1,2) Anesthesiologists have also utilized ultrasonography as early as 1978 when ultrasound was used to aid in the identification of vascular structures for the supraclavicular brachial plexus block
, (3) while more recent higher frequency probes have allowed anesthesiologists to identify individual nerve trunks and thus provide peripheral nerve blockage under direct visualization.
The other advantages of brachial plexus block
over general anaesthesia are:
