Which of the following best describes your position on the use of the
anterior approach to the suprascapular nerve block
for shoulder surgery?
A. I use it as my preferred technique in all settings.
B. I use it occasionally for patients with respiratory disease or other contraindication to interscalene block.
C. I use it for outpatient surgery only.
D. I have not yet attempted this procedure but am interested in doing it in the future as more data emerge.
E. I generally do not find the need for the block as interscalene block is the gold standard and has a wealth of data to support its efficacy in shoulder surgery.
