Addition of a stellate ganglion block to a cervical paravertebral block during arthroscopic shoulder surgery may not result in improved analgesia.
Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty in patients with irreparable rotator cuff tear may lead to long-term improvements in range of motion and pain levels, but may be associated with high rates of complications.
Among patients undergoing shoulder arthroplasty, liposomal bupivacaine was shown to provide better pain relief at 19 to 21 weeks post-surgery with fewer complications compared with continuous interscalene nerve block.
