Abstract
Various methods of infraclavicular brachial plexus block have been introduced in the past, of which Wilson's coracoid infraclavicular brachial plexus block, a more lateral approach, consequently thought to be easier and safer. While only a few cases of transient ipsilateral phrenic nerve palsy after infraclavicular brachial plexus block have been reported, we describe a rare case of phrenic nerve palsy after Wilson's coracoid infraclavicular brachial plexus block.
Key Words: Accessory phrenic nerve; Coracoid infraclavicular brachial block; Phrenic nerve palsy
