High Value Regional Anaesthesia: Extending The Benefit

At a time when the number of regional anaesthetic techniques are increasing, it is of benefit to focus on a limited number of high value nerve blocks, or “Plan A Blocks”. This session will cover two of the “Plan A” Regional Anaesthesia Blocks- The Adductor Canal and Interscalene Brachial plexus blocks. It will then illustrate how liposomal bupivacaine can be used to prolong the duration of analgesia and opioid reduction provided by these nerve blocks.

EXPAREL (liposomal bupivacaine) prescribing information is available here
