Ultrasound-guided blocks in polyfractured patients: An overview and 3 case reports

Author(s): Gemma Lopez-Carcel, Alvaro C Ojeda and Edgardo S. Sanzana*

Background: Anesthesiology has greatly developed during the previous three decades, regularly incorporating new locoregional anesthetic techniques and taking a qualitative step forward by integrating the ultrasound guide into procedures to improve the safety of the patients.

Patients: Three clinical cases of polyfractured patients operated under regional anesthesia are presented. The first case corresponds to a right upper limb polyfractured patient that is operated under axillary block of brachial plexus. The second case is a polyfractured axial skeleton patient with a left femur fracture who is operated under femoral block. The third case corresponds to a polyfractured patient that has an unstable pelvic injury and an open fracture of the left tibia that is operated under anterior sciatic block.

Results: Regional anesthetic blocks have become a fundamental tool for performing various surgical procedures, since they offer great benefits to patients, especially when it comes to polyfractured patients.

Conclusion: Ultrasound-guided locoregional blocks provide excellent anesthesia and analgesia to polyfractured patients, making it possible to perform diverse surgical techniques and facilitating the early functional rehabilitation of the cases.
