Development of a technique for continuous perineural blockade of the palmar nerves in the distal equine thoracic limb



Development of a technique for continuous perineural blockade of the palmar nerves in the distal equine thoracic limb



Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia 35(5): 432-448



Objective: To develop a technique for placing continuous peripheral nerve block (CPNB) catheters adjacent to palmar nerves in horses and to evaluate the effect of low-volume local anaesthetic (LA) infusion on nociception in the distal equine thoracic limb. Study design: <i>In vitro</i> and <i>in vivo</i> laboratory investigation. Study material and animals: Forty-two thoracic limbs from 22 equine cadavers and five horses.
