Clavicle fracture is common in men and children after adirect fall on shoulder during sport activity such as cycling or an injury during a traffic accident.1 The pain afterclavicle fracture surgery may be managed with combinedsuperficial cervical plexus-interscalene block and recently clavipectoral fascia plane block (CPB).1-3 In the literature, data about CPB is so limited (just three case reports),however it seems a good alternative to brachial plexusblock for pain management after clavicle fracture.3-5 Inthis case series we wanted to report the effectiveness ofCPB being performed in five patients underwent claviclefracture surgery. This study was approved by the IstanbulMedipol University Ethics and Research Committee.
