This study mainly explores the clinical effects of dexmedetomidine and dezocine assisted ultrasound-guided nerve block in thyroid surgery. The data from a total of 72 patients who underwent thyroid surgery in our hospital were analyzed. All patients were given ultrasound-guided cervical plexus block anesthesia and divided into three groups. Group A (n=20) and group B (n=22) received dexmedetomidine and dezocine assisted anesthesia respectively, and group C (n=30) was given dexmedetomidine plus dezocine assisted anesthesia. Anesthesia time, operation time and other clinical indicators were compared among the three groups. The results showed that at 12 h and 24 h, group C had a lower degree of pain than groups A and B. The postoperative comfort score of group C was higher compared to groups A and B. The incidence of postoperative adverse reactions reported was lower in group C compared with the other two groups. The above outcomes shows that the combined use of dexmedetomidine and dezocine in ultrasound-guided assisted nerve block during thyroid surgery contributes to better clinical efficacy compared with their single use.
