For shoulder analgesia, both ISO block and low volume scalene (LVS) block (using 5 ml of local anesthetics) are suggested to have a low incidence of hemi-diaphragmatic pariesis (HDP).
The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of HDP and the analgesic efficacy of the LVS block versus ISO block.

|Official Title:||Shoulder Analgesia Sparing Diaphragm; ISO Block Versus Low Volume Scalene Block. A Randomized Controlled Double Blind Study|
|Actual Study Start Date :||October 9, 2017|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||April 2018|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||April 2018|
Active Comparator: LVS group
Procedure: scalene block
scalene block using 5ml of ropivacaine
Active Comparator: ISO group
in this group all patients will receive ISO block.
Procedure: ISO block
ISO block is a combined block of suprascapular nerve and brachial plexus cords using a single puncture
- hemi-diaphragmatic pariesis [ Time Frame: 2-4 hours ]diaphragmatic caudal displacement will be measured (in cm) with real time ultrasound before the block performance and after the procedure
- analgesic efficacy (block success) [ Time Frame: 2-4 hours ]successful block = pain free (VAS 0) in recovery unit. VAS will be used to evaluate the pain (0 = pain free, 10= most sever pain)
- patient satisfaction [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]if the patient is satisfied with the analgesia technique or not
- duration of analgesia [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]duration between the block performance and the first requesting of pain killer (morphine)
- total morphine dose [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]the total morphine consumption within 24 hrs after the block performance
