Abstract

Intravenous (i.v.) regional anesthesia with low-dose lidocaine (1 mg/kg) lidocaine 1% diluted to 0.125% vol) provided safe and effective anesthesia for closed reductions of pediatric forearm fractures in outpatients. This procedure was prospectively evaluated in 44 children at The Nemours Children’s Clinic, Jacksonville, Florida. Forty-three of 44 patients achieved adequate anesthesia (minimal or no pain on closed reduction). No significant complications were noted. Both patients and physicians were satisfied with the procedure. Patient pain was objectively assessed with visual pain charts in the preanesthesic, immediate postanesthetic, and postreduction time periods. The technique was both safe and effective in providing pain relief for reduction of forearm fractures in children.
