Collapse Box


Bilateral regional anesthesia techniques in general and bilateral brachial plexus blocks in particular are rarely performed because they have few clinical indications. We present the case of a patient who presented to the operating room for bilateral upper extremity procedures where we thought regional anesthesia was appropriate. The anesthesia management is discussed as well as potential problems and complications.
