Abstract

Background : Ultrasound-guided brachial plexus block (UGBB) makes it possible to block both lateral and medial aspects of the skin overlying the elbow, which are mainly innervated by C5 and T1 roots of brachial plexus, respectively. The effect of UGBB on perioperative pain relief in total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) was evaluated. Methods : Twenty-one patients scheduled to undergo TEA with general anesthesia from January 2009 to December 2010 were assigned to a group receiving UGBB (Block group, n=10) and a group receiving general anesthesia alone (General group, n=ll). Perioperative anesthetic dose and postoperative pain intensity were recorded. Statistical analysis was performed with Mann-Whitney's U-test, and P
