Femoral Nerve Block – A Guide for Medial Students and Junior Doctors.

I completed this article in collaboration with a senor registrar whilst studying as an undergraduate medical student in Dundee. This article outlines the proposed introduction of a technique that employs ultrasound to visualise the femoral nerve whilst performing a femoral nerve block. This procedure is performed on patients in both the emergency dept and surgical theatres. Traditionally this procedure has been performed using a 'blind technique' which has an increased association with side effects including inadvertent damage to local structures and systemic toxicity related to local anaesthetic. In the article we give a brief outline of both the the traditional and ultrasound guided techniques and allow readers to understand the benefits of using the proposed technique. We believe that this article will be of great interest to senior medical student and junior doctors who are interested in careers in emergency medicine and anaesthesia. This

Anaesthesia UK : Anatomy relevant to epidural and subarachnoid blockade

The typical thoracic vertebra has a heart-shaped body (Figure 1) bearing one or two facets for articulation with the head of a rib. Its vertebral foramen is smaller and more circular than those of the cervical and lumbar regions. The two pedicles bear long and strong transverse processes. It articulates with its neighbouring vertebra with articular processes that bear nearly vertical facets facing (superior) posteriorly and (inferior) anteriorly. Its spinous process is long and slopes posteroinferiorly so that its tip overlies the level of the vertebral body below. Figure 1The typical lumbar vertebra has a larger kidney-shaped body and its vertebral foramen is larger than that of the thoracic vertebra (Figure 2). Its transverse processes are long and slender and its articular processes are directed (superior) posteromedially and (inferior) anterolaterally. Its spinous process is shorter, broader and more horizontal than those of the thoracic vertebrae.Figure 2Joints and ligaments of the vertebraeJoints: the articular surfaces of the bodies of adjacent vertebrae are covered by hyaline cartilage and united by a thick fibrocartilaginous intervertebral disc. These are strong cartilaginous joints designed for weight-bearing. The disc is a shock absorber, its centre, the nucleus pulposus, is gelatinous and surrounded by a fibrous part, the annulus fibrosus. Adjacent vertebrae articulate by two synovial facet joints between the paired articular processes.
