Abstract

Objectives : To make a comparative evaluation of efficacy of brachial plexus blockade between supraclavicular subclavian perivascular technique and axillary transarterial technique with a tourniquet and also to compare the latency & potency of the block, to ascertain the risks of complications between the techniques and to compare the haemodynamic stability of the patient.

Methods : For this purpose a total of 100 undergoing surgery for distal to the midarm. They were randomly selected by odd and even numbering method. These patients were divided into two groups (Group A: subclavian perivascular supraclavicular technique bearing all the odds numbers and Group B: transarterial axillary technique with a tourniquet bearing all the even numbers; fifty patients in each group.

Results : The only exception is the mean on set time of sensory block was 11.0±2.6 minutes and 14.3±2.1 minutes in Group A and Group B respectively. The mean on set time of motor block were 18.3±3.9 minutes in Group A and 21.4±3.2 minutes in Group B. So the mean on set time of sensory block and motor block were statistically significant (p<0.05). Most of the patients found complete sensory block and complete motor block between two groups and no significant (p>0.05) difference was found in the present study. Adequate efficacy of block were predominate in both groups and no significant (p>0.05) difference was found. The level of satisfaction of surgeon and it was found that 92.0% in Group A and 94.0% in Group B were satisfied. Patients co-operation was found 92.0% and 94.0% in Group A and Group B respectively. No significant (p>0.05) difference were found in terms of surgeon satisfaction and patients cooperation between two groups.

Conclusion : It can be concluded that the supraclavicular subclavian perivascular technique and axillary transarterial technique with a tourniquet both are equally effective and safe method for providing brachial plexus block distal to midarm (Lower half of the arm, elbow, forearm and hand).
