Since the transthecal digital block was first introduced by Chiu in 1990, some modified digital block techniques have been described. Harbinson (1991) described an alternative single injection technique that uses a subcutaneous location at palmophalangeal crease. This techinque involves palmar percutaneous injection of 2 ml of lidocaine (Xylocaine) with a 5 ml syringe and a No. 26-gauge hypodermic needle. Over the last 17 months, we have used this technique on 57 patients with no observable anesthetic complications. Subcutaneous single injection at palmo-phalangeal crease was to reduce pain from block itself and to be easier to administer.
