Abstract

The use of ultrasound is a fast growing area of regional anesthesia and pain medicine in practice and research. The technique of ultrasound-guided nerve block enables the visualization of peripheral nerves in the forearm and the insertion of a catheter for pain therapy. In a 37-year-old female a pain catheter was placed next to the median nerve. Ultrasound was used to visualize the nerve and to confirm correct catheter positioning and allowed extensive and painless early physiotherapy following arthrolysis and tenolysis of the flexor tendons.
