Description: 50 patients receiving Brachial Plexus Block (BPB group), and 50 patients receiving Hematoma Block (HB group) during reduction of distal forearm fractures,
Pain measured by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) was recorded before, during, and after reduction.
Visual Analogue Scale during reduction in both the groups was comparable meaning that pain relief during reduction was not significantly different in both the groups. The Quality of reduction was found to be more in the HB group than the BPB group thereby meaning the chances of the perfect reduction in the HB group is three times higher than that of the reduction in the BPB group.
