Electrocortical Analysis of patients with intercostobrachial
pain with TENT after breast cancer surgery.
Axillary dissection may lead to damage to the thoracodorsal, long thoracic, intercostobrachial
nerves and axillary soft tissue, which causes acute and chronic postoperative pain after mastectomy (10, 11).
Local anesthetic administered into the interfascial plane likely reached the axilla via an axillary port, easily blocking the intercostobrachial
and medial brachial cutaneous nerves, which innervate the axillary area.
 Some of the factors contributing to pain may be noted as mastectomy, axillary lymph node dissection, trauma to the tissues during the surgery, dissection of the intercostobrachial
nerve, or intraoperative injury of axillary nerve branches.
Electrocortical analysis of patients with intercostobrachial
pain treated with TENS after breast cancer surgery.
described a new approach similar to Ohtsuka et al.'s, although it is completely endoscopic and avoids the transaxillary route, avoiding the risk of injury to the intercostobrachial
cutaneous nerve .
(2015) studied the branching patterns by computed tomography and reported that the most frequent variation (24.03%) corresponded to a left bronchial artery originating directly from the thoracic aorta and the right bronchial artery originating from the intercostobrachial
trunk (type II Cauldwell) .
The variant musculocutaneous muscle was covering all neurovascular bundle (F) and especially seen to compress intercostobrachial
also limits the areas of ARM nodes, 88 % of them, between the intercostobrachial
nerve and axillary vein, frequently distant from the SLN.
The remaining 2ml was diluted to 4ml and used for intercostobrachial
nerve block to prevent tourniquet pain.
The effectiveness of this novel therapy strongly suggests the source of this common pain syndrome is damage to the T4 and T5 sensory nerves during surgery, rather than damage to the intercostobrachial
nerve, as traditionally thought, according to Dr.
