Summary of "Thoracic paravertebral block: comparison of different approaches and techniques. A study on 27 human cadavers."

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.

Comparison of caudal epidural block with paravertebral block for renal surgeries in pediatric patients: A prospective randomised, blinded clinical trial.

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.

Ultrasound-guided quadratus lumborum block in pediatrics: trans-muscular versus intra-muscular approach.

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...

Local anesthetic spread into the paravertebral space with two types of quadratus lumborum blocks: a crossover volunteer study.

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...

Erector Spinae Plane Catheter for Postoperative Analgesia After Thoracotomy in a Pediatric Patient: A Case Report.

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 ...

Operative planning in Thoracic Surgery: A pilot study comparing imaging techniques and 3D printing.

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...

Comparison of Thoracic Paravertebral Block to Serratus Anterior Plane Block in Breast Surgery

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...

Post-operative Pulmonary Function After Thoracotomy Under Two Different Techniques

Comparison of Erector Spinae Plane Block With Thoracic Paravertebral Block for Breast Surgery

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...

Pecs II Block as Alternative for Paravertebral Block in Modified Radical Mastectomy

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...
