Abstract

In this study, the aim was to compare postoperative analgesia effects of the administration of ultrasound-guided interscalene brachial plexus block and intra-articular bupivacaine carried out with bupivacaine. In the first group of patients 20mL 0.25% bupivacaine and ultrasound-guided interscalene brachial plexus block (ISPB) were applied, while 20mL 0.25% bupivacaine was given via intra-articular (IA) administration to the second group patients after surgery. Patients in the third group were considered the control group and no block was performed. Patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with morphine was used in all three groups for postoperative analgesia. In the ISPB group, morphine consumption in the periods between 0-4, 6-12 and 12-24 postoperative hours and total consumption within 24h was lower than in the other two groups. Morphine consumption in the IA group was lower than in the control group in the period from 0 to 6h and the same was true for total morphine consumption in 24h. Postoperative VASr scores in the ISPB group were lower than both of the other groups in the first 2h and lower than the control group in the 4th and 6th hours (p<0.05). In the IA group, VASr and VASm scores in the 2nd, 4th and 6th hours were lower than in the control group (p<0.05). Interscalene brachial plexus block was found to be more effective than intra-articular local anesthetic injection for postoperative analgesia.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 May 2020.
All research outputs
#5,611,288
of 17,831,129 outputs
Outputs from Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology (English edition)
#20
of 170 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#76,042
of 241,686 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology (English edition)
#2
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,831,129 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 67th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 170 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 241,686 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
