(Abstracted from Can J Anaesth, 64(1):29–36, 2017) The purpose of this randomized trial was to compare intravenous (IV) and perineural (PN) dexamethasone in the axillary approach to the brachial plexus. The primary outcome recorded was the duration of the ultrasound (US)–guided axillary motor block (AXB) rather than sensory blockade, which can be influenced by drugs and nerve trauma.
