Abstract

There is increasing evidence that the performance of peripheral nerve blocks can favorably influence outcome parameters after outpatient upper extremity surgery. Therefore, the utilization of RA should be considered as a primary option when an anesthetic plan for an individual undergoing ambulatory upper extremity surgery is developed. At the same time, when performed by trained physicians adhering to widely recognized standards, these techniques have a favorable side effect profile and can be safely performed on outpatients.
