Under aseptic precautions bilateral cervical plexus block both superficial and deep block was achieved.
Superficial cervical plexus block is achieved by injecting 2ml of 1%xylocaine and 3ml 0.25% Bupivacaine at the point where external jugular vein crosses the posterior border of Sternocleidomastoid muscle in fan shaped manner after negative aspiration for blood and CSF.
After 10 minutes of combined interscalene and cervical plexus block effect was adequate.
Combined interscalene and cervical plexus block reduced the ICU stay of the patient and no nebulisation required in the ICU stay (14, 15)
In the operating theatre, a left superficial cervical plexus block (5 ml 0.75% ropivacaine + 5 ml 1% lignocaine) and left auriculotemporal nerve block (2.5 ml 0.75% ropivacaine + 2.5 ml 1% lignocaine) were performed.
A right superficial cervical plexus block was performed using 10 ml of 0.5% levobupivacaine.
Our work on the deep cervical plexus block
has utilized the vascular access Site ~ Rite [R] 11 7.5 MHz probe, which is designed for depths of 1.5 to 4 cm.
