Transthecal Anesthesia of Fingers

Abstract


First experience in transthecal anesthesia application for the treatment of 62 patients with different fingers injuries was analyzed. That method showed its efficacy in 52 (83.9%) cases. The level of anesthesia on the palmar surface of the finger corresponded to the injection point, on the dorsal one - to the middle of the main phalanx. Incomplete transthecal block was observed in cases when the injuries or their sequelae resulted in disturbance of tendon sheath leak-proofness (or permeability) as well as in interventions on a thumb.
