Perioperative Erector Spinae Plane Block in Thoracoscopic Surgery

2018-12-21 04:43:11 | BioPortfolio


The erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is a novel myofascial plane block. The ESPB is targeted at anterior surface of the erector spinae plane, which is oriented cephalocaudally to the spinal transverse process. Local anaesthetic injected in this plane can block the dorsal rami and ventral rami and intercostal nerves. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of ESPB on postoperative pain in thoracic surgery.


The erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is a newly defined regional anesthesia technique for thoracic analgesia. The blocks were performed at the T5 level of the spine using an in-plane approach.Previous studies were not designed as randomized controlled trial. In this study, the efficacy of ESPB is to confirm with randomized controlled trial design. ESPB will be performed in video assisted thoracoscopy preoperatively. After the surgery, the efficacy of ESPB will be assessed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).

Pain during the period after surgery.

A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.

Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.

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.
