Full-Text   Cite this paper   Add to My Lib


Performing safe and effective regional anaesthesia for ophthalmic surgery is an important skill for anaesthetic and ophthalmologic practitioners. Akinetic sharp-needle blocks are generally safe but rare, sight and life threatening complications occur. Sub-Tenon’s block using a blunt canula provides akinesa and is a safer alternative but serious complications have been reported. This review provides an introduction to the relevant anatomy, local anaesthetic drugs and commonly used techniques and a practical guide to their safe performance.
