Abstract

Providing complete anesthesia to the entire upper extremity remains challenging. We present the use of a novel, updated, regional anesthetic technique-an ultrasound-guided supraclavicular - interscalene block (UGSCIS) - to provide anesthesia and analgesia to a patient with end-stage liver disease who required fixation of a pathologic fracture of the humerus.
