The suprascapular nerve at the supraglenoid notch using USG. The operator stands behind the patient, parallel to the ultrasound monitor, to achieve an ergonomic position. The ultrasound monitor is placed in front of the patient. The patient is in a lateral decubitus position, with the affected palm against the nonaffected shoulder and padding to protect the prominent area of the body. A sterile technique was used to prepare and clean the affected shoulder. The injection site for the suprascapular nerve block at the spinoglenoid notch is 2 cm below the spine scapula (A). An echogenic 23-G (3.5 in) spinal needle is inserted from medial to lateral (B). Injection (20 mg triamcinolone acetonide, 4 mL 2% lidocaine, and 4 mL 0.5% bupivacaine as a cocktail) was given and waited for 1–2 min.
