Radial nerve paralysis after tourniquet at intravenous regional anesthesia (Case report) [Rejyonal i?ntravenöz anestezide turnike sonrasi radiyal sinir paralizisi]
We aimed to presentate the radial nerve paralysis after IVRA with double tourniquet method. Case: The cystic mass at forearm of 34 aged woman was excised under IVRA. The total operation time was 20 minutes. At the operation's finishing time, it was seen that both esmarch bandage and pneumotic tourniquet were still using. Our case had drop hand at postoperative period and recovered six weeks later. In conclusion; double tourniquet must be used at IRVA in order to decrease the tourniquet damage, esmarch tourniquet must be taken off after pneumotic tourniguet was inflated.
