Abstract: A randomized controlled study was done among 90 patients who underwent upper limb surgeries under department of anesthesiology during the study period of October 2019 to August 2021 in GSL medical college and hospital, satisfying inclusion and exclusion criteria. All the patients were randomly allocated into following groups after obtaining their consent. Group A-Patients received (20ml 0.75% ropivacaine diluted to 30ml + 0.5ml [50mcg] Dexmedetomidine plus 1.5ml of N/S) perineurally in the Brachial Plexus using supraclavicular approach. Group B-Patients received (20ml of 0.75% ropivacaine diluted to 30ml+ 8mg (2ml) Dexamethasone) perineurally with same approach. Group C - Patients received 20ml of 0.75% ropivacaine diluted to 30 ml+2ml of N/S. It was interpreted that Dexmedetomidine provided superior to dexamethasone, but both adjuvants are superior.
