Interscalene brachial plexus block for scapular and upper chest pain due to cervical radiculopathy: a randomized controlled clinical trial
Journal of Orthopaedic Science, 07/31/2012
Murata Y et al. – Interscalene brachial plexus block is useful for upper limb, scapular and chest pain due to disorders of the cervical spine. The scapular and chest pain pathway is more likely to be interrupted by an interscalene brachial plexus block that causes a stellate ganglion block compared to an interscalene brachial plexus block without stellate ganglion block.
