Our Echogenic Products for your Fascial Plane Blocks

What are Fascial Plane Blocks?

 

The application of ultrasound in regional anaesthesia has started with peripheral nerve blocks until Hebbard et al. showed the transversus abdomins plane (TAP) block in this field. The difference of the ultrasound-guided truncal blocks (fascial blocks) to peripheral nerve blocks is that there is no need for identification of nerves or plexus. The anaesthetic (LA) is injected in an explicit muscle plane in which the injectate will be distributed and reaches the supposed nerve. To get a structured overview regarding truncal blocks, the following differentiation can be used: Blocks of the abdominal wall, blocks in the chest and paraspinal blocks.1

 

 

 

What Pajunk offers?

We offer different single shot needles and continuous catheter systems for fascial plane blocks. Below you find for each block a product recommendation and a literature review.

 

Why Pajunk?

Because we have years of experience in the field of ultrasound-guided needles. In collaboration with Dr. Chris Mitchell, we have succeeded in creating an effect that allows the ultrasound to always return to the transducer, thus generating the best possible ultrasound image.
