Foreword to first edition
Regional anesthesia has come to stay. Its development and progress have been slow, principally because the anesthetist must have an accurate knowledge of anatomy and a high degree of technical skill in order that the anesthesia may be safe and satisfactory, and that the operation not be delayed. These words by surgeon William J. Mayo opened the foreword to Gaston Labat’s Regional Anesthesia, its Technic and Application. 1 Published in 1922, Labat’s text focused on the peri-operative management of patients undergoing intra-abdominal, head and neck, and extremity procedures using infiltration, peripheral, plexus, and splanchnic blockade (using recently introduced procaine); neuraxial techniques were not widely applied at the time.
The art and science of regional anesthesia have progressed significantly over the last century, resulting in improved safety and increased success rates. The frequency of serious complications related to neural blockade continues to decrease and is similar, if not superior, to that of general anesthesia. Improved methods of neural localization and imaging such as fluoroscopy, high-resolution ultrasound and stimulating catheters have facilitated accurate needle/catheter placement. Most importantly, prospective randomized clinical investigations have demonstrated improved outcomes for patients undergoing major surgical procedures when regional anesthesia and analgesia is utilized. Thus, issues regarding safety, success rate, and efficacy have been addressed.
However, it is noteworthy that several of the early concerns have changed little. For example, an understanding of anatomic relationships, neural innervation, and physiology remain paramount in the application of regional anesthetic and analgesic techniques. Many clinicians do not have ready access to an anatomy laboratory, and classic anatomical atlases were constructed by anatomists, not regional anesthesiologists, resulting in illustrations that depict neural anatomy with the ‘wrong’ limb orientation and/or cross-sectional view. Finally, the majority of resident training programs do not provide formal training in peripheral blockade. Experienced clinicians and trainees must both have access to anatomic sections and simulators, allowing the proceduralist to explore the anatomical relationships between nerves and related structures prior to patient contact.
From this perspective, I have found the content, organization, and multimedia components of Peripheral Nerve Blocks and Perioperative Pain Reliefs both thorough and comprehensive. The authors present the superficial and deep anatomical relationships using text, line drawings, still photographs, MR images, and video clips. The block techniques themselves are depicted in still photographs and video demonstrations, often with associated MR images of local anesthetic distribution. Thus, the text and DVD-ROM complement each other and provide the reader with a knowledge base that builds on itself to describe safe, efficacious and efficient peripheral blockade.
Labat 1 concluded in his 1922 text, ‘Regional anesthesia is an art.’ Nearly a century later, Peripheral Nerve Blocks and Perioperative Pain Relief characterizes the current state of the art (and science) of regional anesthesia. I applaud the authors for their accomplishments.

Foreword to second edition
In his classic text, Regional Anesthesia, Its Technic and Application 1 , Gaston Labat noted, “The practice of regional anesthesia is an art. It requires special knowledge of anatomy, skill in the performance of its various procedures, experience in the method of handling patients, and gentleness in the execution of surgical procedures.” Six years ago, Barrett et al defined the contemporary “art” of peripheral regional techniques in Peripheral Nerve Blocks and Perioperative Pain Relief.
