Cervical plexus block has been evaluated clinically for surgery of the anterior neck in 13 patients during the 10 months(from July 1981 to April 1982) at the Department of Anesthesiology in Capital Armed Forces General Hospital. We have assessed CPB for technique, onset, anesthetized area, duration, complication and supplimentary agents, and reviewed the anatomical aspects of cervical plexus. The distribution of injected local anesthetics was demonstrated under radiography using Urographin. We experienced incomplete block in 9 cases which needed substitution with Thalamonal. The incidence of complications was few and most significant complication seen in this study was respiratory difficulty. However, There was no evidence for phrenic nerve paralysis. Cervical plexus block was performed safely and effectively for surgery of the anterior neck.
