Bilateral axillary brachial plexus block
guided by multiple nerve stimulation and ultrasound in a multiple trauma patient.
It would appear that these three groups of anaesthetists working in different countries (South Africa, Israel and United States) failed to appreciate the translational potential of their innovative technique: while they were searching for an easy and safe technique for limited cases, they opened a new way for performing the axillary brachial plexus block
in every patient undergoing upper extremity surgery.
A large dose and volume of local anaesthetic are thought to be important determinants of successful brachial plexus block

The construction of vascular access for haemodialysis is commonly performed under brachial plexus block
Whilst I appreciate the information and advice resulting from the case report by Khoo and Corbett (1), I feel that their procedure, or rather their intended procedure, of axillary brachial plexus block

Of the brachial plexus blocks
, the interscalene approach is the only one to anesthetize the suprascapular nerve.
Examples of simple blocks include intercostal blocks, ilioinguinal blocks, occipital nerve blocks, brachial plexus blocks
, and stellate ganglion blocks.
