USG Guided triple peripheral nerve blocks in an arthrodesis patient who has implanted cardioverter defibrillatorsSenem Urfali, Onur Koyuncu, Sedat Hakimoglu, Yunus Dogramaci.
The use of combined peripheral nerve blocks significantly reduces morbidity and mortality in high-risk patients. The widespread use of ultrasound in peripheral nerve blocks provides success with less local anesthetic amounts in patients with multiple blocks. In this case report, we aimed to present the use of a combination of sciatic nerve block, femoral nerve block and fascia iliaca block in a patient with implanted cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and vascular pathologies who underwent an arthrodesis operation for bimalleolar fracture.
Key words: Femoral nerve block; sciatic nerve block; fascia iliaca nerve block.
