Background and Objectives: Lateral sagittal infraclavicular block by single injection has a faster performance time and causes less discomfort than does axillary block by multiple injections. This prospective, descriptive, multicenter study assessed block effectiveness, onset time, and incidence of adverse events and verified the noninvasive measurements from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
