What will be the role of peripheral nerve blocks in ambulatory surgery in the future?
The future for regional anesthesiologists in ambulatory surgery has never been brighter and more promising. The use of better equipment and an increasing insight into the functional regional anesthesia anatomy has resulted in a renaissance of the field. A number of more practical, accurate and efficacious new techniques have been introduced which have much simplified the cumbersome and complicated anatomical landmarks in the traditional approaches to major conduction blocks. [11, 12, 13, 14] More importantly, these new techniques are easier to master and teach and can be used even in patients in whom the classical approaches are not feasible. These techniques also likely to improve the acceptance of nerve blocks by the surgeons, patients and anesthesiologists.The introduction of continuous peripheral blocks has vastly increased the usefulness and flexibility of peripheral nerve blocks by extending analgesia for several days after the surgery. [15, 16] A wider implementation of these te
