Abstract

Objectives: Despite several risks, infraclavicular approaches to the brachial plexus gained popularity. The present study compared success rates, block onset times, block performance times, and frequency of adverse effects of vertical infraclavicular (VIB) and coracoid blocks (CB) in patients undergoing forearm surgery.
