Abstract

General Anesthesia is preferred over regional anesthesia in clavicle surgery. We report 3 cases of clavicle fracture which was performed under USG guided combined Interscalene and Superficial cervical plexus block. All the patients were comfortable and there was no need for additional analgesia. Thus regional anesthesia can be used as a sole anesthetic technique in patients with clavicle fracture and can be an alternative where general anaesthesia and its adverse effects needs to be avoided.

Keywords: clavicle fracture; interscalene brachial plexus block; superficial cervical plexus block. Correspondance: Dr.
