Streszczenie: Regional anaesthesia techniques have gained great popularity in recent years, as it provides excellent anaesthesia and analgesia for many surgical procedures. Lots of courses, workshops, multimedia materials and wide access to high-end ultrasound devices make the Polish anaesthesiologists perform various blockades with enthusiasm. But there is also a dark side of regional anaesthesia, which should not be forgotten — complications. Although nerve injuries are considered to be multifactorial in nature and the vast majority of them are not due to regional anaesthesia, anaesthesiologists and anaesthetised patients must be aware of the risk. Because of the potentially devastating sequelae of regional blocks, updating knowledge on this topic is very needed. The aim of this review is to summarize current knowledge concerning regional anaesthesia induced peripheral nerve injury.
