Abstract

Background: The analgesic effect of continuous interscalene block with ropivacaine at a low concentration was compared with that of single-shot interscalene block after arthroscopic rotator cuff reconstruction (ARCR). Methods: Eighty patients scheduled to undergo ARCR from January 2010 to March 2012 were assigned to a group receiving postoperative continuous interscalene block (continuous group, n=46) and a group receiving single-shot interscalne block (single group, n=34). In both groups, ultrasound-guided interscalene block was performed before induction of general anesthesia. In the Continuous group, continuous interscalene infusion with 0.1% ropivacaine was performed up to postoperative 48 hours. Pain intensity (Prince-Henry scale), additional use of analgesics, and adverse effects were recorded. Statistical analysis was performed with Mann-Whitney test, and P
