Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Ultrasound guided nerve block has become popular in pediatric practice. We applied this technique to infants undergoing pyloromyotomy.

METHODS:

We retrospectively reviewed the hospital records of infants who underwent pyloromyotomy with the aid of the ultrasound guided nerve block from July 2010 to March 2011.

RESULTS:

Rectus sheath block was performed in 4 infants. In one infant ilioinguinal/hypogastric nerve block was also placed for simultaneous repair of inguinal hernia. There were no complications attributable to the ultrasound guided nerve block.

CONCLUSIONS:

We performed ultrasound guided nerve block safely in infants undergoing pyloromyotomy.
