Patient had a history of ICU (Intensive care uit) admission 6 months back with signs and symptoms suggestive of heart failure, although no past reports were available. Even after taking all standard precautions, patient developed Raynaud’s phenomenon intraoperatively involving only the fingers for which we had given wrist block with 9 ml of 0.5% loxicard and 0.0625% bupivacaine bilaterally.The case was unique in its nature as the usual management of unresolving raynauds phenomenon with vasodilators could not be done here due to unknown cardiac status of the patient.
