Abstract

Stellate (cervicothoracic) ganglion block (SGB) can be associated with serious complications, such as esophageal and vascular injury. The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential for vascular and esophageal injury in healthy subjects by examining the sonoanatomy of the neck relevant to the SGB at the sixth (C6) and seventh (C7) cervical vertebral levels and determining the incidence of blood vessels and esophagi in the simulated path of needle insertion in the conventional and two different ultrasound-guided approaches used to perform a SGB.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 April 2017.
All research outputs
#3,844,047
of 13,036,168 outputs
Outputs from Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
#639
of 1,621 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#36,468
of 125,771 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
#5
of 28 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,036,168 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,621 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.8. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 125,771 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 58% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 28 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its contemporaries.
