Carotid endarterectomy(CEA) is being increasingly performed under regional anaesthesia supplemented with sedation, the world over. Deep or superficial cervical plexus blocks or a combination of both have been found to be equally effective. Various imaging modalities like fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT), CT-fluoroscopy, ultra­sound etc have been used to increase the success rates of the technique and to reduce the rate of complications associated with the block.

We present a case report of how fluoroscopy aided us in administering cervical plexus block.
