Brachial plexus anaesthesia has been an indispensable tool in the anaesthesiologist's armamentarium. Clinical studies have shown that levobupivacaine and ropivacaine have fewer adverse effects on the cardiovascular and central nervous system making them more advantageous in regional anaesthesia techniques. Less information is available regarding their comparable clinical data. Only a few studies have compared levobupivacaine and ropivacaine for brachial plexus blocks; hence, this study was aimed to compare the analgesic effectiveness and nerve block characteristics of ropivacaine and levobupivacaine in supraclavicular brachial plexus blocks in upper limb surgeries.
