Özet

The aim of this study was to share our experience with the application of a superficial cervical plexus block in the ear operation of a 59-year-old male patient. The superficial cervical plexus provides sensory innervation of the superficial structures of the anterolateral neck, ear, and shoulder. Ultrasound-guided cervical plexus block may be an alternative method for both anesthesia and analgesia in ear surgery.
