The 2 goals of this lecture is to spend time on how to perform a variety of lower limb diagnostic nerve and joint blocks including reviewing the relevant anatomy for each block. Then secondly will be interpretation of these blocks. A number of things can influence the outcome of a distal limb nerve or joint block including time after injection , volume of anaesthetic and location of needle placement and discussion will centre around how these can all result in what sometimes is an incorrect diagnosis. Examples of how things can be simple and complicated at the same time will be demonstrated using a variety of case examples. Blocks that will be discussed at length include the palmar digital block, abaxial block, low 4 point block, high 1 point in front and back legs, high 4 point, coffin joint block, pastern joint, fetlock joint, as well as carpal and tarsal joints
