The success rate and the spread of thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB) are variable and difficult to predict. It is now recommended that an ultrasound guidance technique should replace the traditional landmark technique. The objective was to compare anatomical outcomes of both techniques on cadavers.

This study was undertaken to compare the analgesic efficacy of ultrasound-guided single-shot caudal block with ultrasound-guided single-shot paravertebral block in children undergoing renal surgeries.
Quadratus lumborum (QL) block has four approaches. However, there is difference between the four approaches regarding efficacy, safety and adverse effects. The primary objective of this study is to co...
Previous work showed that 20 mL of local anesthetic (LA) did not spread into the paravertebral space (PVS) via the intramuscular quadratus lumborum block (QLBi). If spread of LA into the PVS can be a...
Thoracotomy is associated with significant postoperative pain. While postoperative pain control after thoracotomy is most commonly managed with a thoracic epidural or paravertebral catheter, both are ...
Careful preoperative planning in thoracic surgery is essential for positive outcomes especially in video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) where palpation and 3-dimensional imaging is restricted. The o...
Comparison of the Clinical Efficacy of 2 Paravertebral Block Strategies in Thoracic Surgery by Thoracotomy: by the Anesthetist (Paravertebral Block Guided by Ultrasound) and by the Thoracic Surgeon (Paravertebral Block Visual)
Post-thoracotomy pain is one of the most severe. The local analgesia allows its effective control and a reduction of postoperative morbidity and mortality. The gold standard for local ana...
The investigators hypothesize that the analgesic efficacy of ultrasound-guided serratus anterior plane block will provide better analgesia with fewer complications in comparison to ultraso...
To assess the respiratory and analgesic effects of continuous thoracic paravertebral block versus thoracic epidural in patients undergoing thoracotomy
Postoperative analgesia in breast surgery is a difficult and overworked issue due to etensive surgery and complex innervation of the breast. Erector spinae plane block (ESB) is a new defin...
Breast surgeries are usually associated with significant postoperative pain. Suitability of analgesic technique after breast surgery is always questionable. The aim of this study is to com...
Comparison of outcomes, results, responses, etc for different techniques, therapeutic approaches or other inputs.
A paravertebral sympathetic ganglion formed by the fusion of the inferior cervical and first thoracic ganglia.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Techniques used to add in exogenous gene sequence such as mutated genes; REPORTER GENES, to study mechanisms of gene expression; or regulatory control sequences, to study effects of temporal changes to GENE EXPRESSION.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
