Abstract

We report a case of multiple upper limb fractures resulting from a road traffic accident, wherein the patient declined general anesthesia. Instead, we successfully administered anesthesia using ultrasound-guided supraclavicular and suprascapular nerve blocks, combined with continuous perineural brachial plexus block. The surgical procedure was successfully completed within six hours, and no complications were encountered.
