Prospective Clinical Trial Comparing Infraclavicular Versus Axillary Approach to Brachial Plexus Block
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||scaphoid fractures, distal radius fractures, wrist injury arthrodesis|
|Treatments||ultrasound: axillary block, ultrasound: infraclavicular block, ropivacaine|
|Sponsor||Federal University of São Paulo|
|Start date||February 2014|
|End date||March 2015|
|Trial size||46 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02208245, Infra Study|
The brachial plexus block is an anesthetic technique often used for surgical procedures of the upper limb. To get the brachial plexus block, several routes can be used, including the axillary and infraclavicular approach.
Few studies have compared these techniques, considering the time to perform the block, the onset time and success rate, with conflicting results. Furthermore, there is little information in the literature comparing the length of postoperative analgesia provided by these techniques.
Therefore, the investigators designed this study in order to elucidate the differences between these two techniques to assist the anesthesiologist to choose the best of them in clinical practice.
