Özet

The brachial plexus is a peripheral nerve system that is responsible for motor, sympathetic and sensorial innervations of upper extremity. Brachial plexus lies between neck and shoulder next to great vessels and lungs. The anesthesia of upper extremities and shoulder can be achieved by blockade of brachial plexus in different places. Brachial plexus can be blocked using interscalene, supraclavicular, infraclavicular and axillary methods. In this case report, we presented an infraclavicular brachial plexus blockade for a patient with ulnar shaft fracture.
