Several techniques of infraclavicular brachial plexus nerve block (ICB) have been described in literature: stressing on various surface landmarks, site of needle insertion, and needle direction. Classical infraclavicular approach was the first one to be described followed by the retroclavicular and costoclavicular approach. Here we describe a novel technique of ICB is proximal out-plane retroclavicular approach. Proximal out-plane retroclavicular is simple and handy, in our experience. It also offer advantages over distal in-plane retroclavicular approach as it targets proximally clustered cords rather than individual cord.
