The CHAPTER 3: Cervical Paravertebral Block FIGURE 3-7 The intended path for tunneling of the catheter is also injected with local anesthetic agent. FIGURE 3-8 An 18-gauge insulated Tuohy needle is attached to a nerve stimulator and enters the skin in the apex of the “V” between levator scapulae and trapezius muscles. It is advanced anteromedially, aiming for the suprasternal notch, until the pars intervertebralis or articular column is encountered. FIGURE 3-9 A dissection of the nerve root in the lumbar area shows the dura surrounding the nerve roots.

It may be of considerable help to use ultrasonography to identify the pars intervertebralis and the nerve roots, as illustrated in Figure 3-16. The ultrasound probe is held anterior to the levator scapulae muscle and outside the sterile field. Figure 3-17 illustrates the pars inter- vertebralis (articular column), nerve roots, and subclavian artery. Remove the needle without disturbing the catheter, and remove the inner stylet of the catheter (Fig. 3-18). The catheter position can now be reconfirmed by attaching the nerve stimulator to the catheter.

1-1, [13]), medial (see Fig. 1-1, [14]), and lateral (see Fig. 1-1, [12]), according to their relationship with the axillary artery. The three cords originate from the divisions and terminate in the branches of the brachial plexus. As can be seen from Figure 5-1, the cords are close to the coracoid process (arrow), to which the minor pectoral muscle is attached. Furthermore, the large vessels to the arm separate the brachial plexus from the dome of the rib cage. The subclavian vein and artery are seen and the brachial plexus cords are superolateral to the vascular structures.
