The ankle block is an effective regional anesthesia technique for surgery of the foot and toes. Note: it does not provide anesthesia of the ankle. Quick, potentially very effective and less risky than other regional techniques, this is a good one to know. I spent some time on YouTube, watching various ankle block videos. Here's my top 4.
As I've written before, NYSORA is a fantastic resource for regional anesthesia. Here is the page about ankle blocks.

Bottomline: Excellent resource for learning anatomy and technique, especially nerve-stimulator.
