PECS II BLOCK VERSUS SURGEON INFILTRATION FOR OPEN SUBPECTORAL BICEPS TENODESIS

Brief description of study

All patients who undergo arthroscopic shoulder surgery with open biceps tenodesis receive interscalene nerve blocks, unless there is a medical reason that prohibits this. This nerve block reduces pain in the shoulder, but not pain in the biceps tendon area (the front of your upper arm). For this reason, the surgeons inject a local anesthetic (numbing medication) into the area around the biceps tendon. The purpose of this research study is to see if a PECS II block (a local anesthetic injection under your deep pectoralis muscle) will reduce postoperative pain and opioid usage after your open biceps tenodesis surgery in comparison to the local anesthetic injection in the bicep tendon area by the surgeon
