Bilateral vs. Unilateral Erector Spinae Plane Block

The importance of multimodal analgesia for postoperative pain management is well known and regional anesthesia techniques are commonly prefferred to provide better analgesia. Erector spina...

Erector Spinae Plane Block for Peroperative Analgesia and Intraabdominal Tissue Oxygenation

Brief summary: Regional anesthesia decreases the need for intravenous analgesia in the peri-operative period. Erector spinae plane (ESP) is a regional anesthesia technique shown to be effe...

Analgesia of Erector Spinae Plane Block Versus Quadratus Lumborum Block

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide. These patients usually undergo open surgical resection of cancer under general anaesthesia. The aim of this study is to detect...

Erector Spinae Plane Block for Postoperative Analgesia for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Erector Spinae Plane Block is a newly defined regional anesthesia technique. Its use for many indications has been identified by case reports in the literature. As the investigators have c...

Ultrasound Guided Bilateral Erector Spinae Plane Block Versus Tumescent Anesthesia

In breast reduction surgery, pain control is usually performed with tumescent anesthesia, thoracic epidural anesthesia, intercostal nerve blocks and paravertebral block applications. Tumes...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).

A form of acupuncture with electrical impulses passing through the needles to stimulate NERVE TISSUE. It can be used for ANALGESIA; ANESTHESIA; REHABILITATION; and treatment for diseases.

The intentional interruption of transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION by external agents, usually neuromuscular blocking agents. It is distinguished from NERVE BLOCK in which nerve conduction (NEURAL CONDUCTION) is interrupted rather than neuromuscular transmission. Neuromuscular blockade is commonly used to produce MUSCLE RELAXATION as an adjunct to anesthesia during surgery and other medical procedures. It is also often used as an experimental manipulation in basic research. It is not strictly speaking anesthesia but is grouped here with anesthetic techniques. The failure of neuromuscular transmission as a result of pathological processes is not included here.

Analgesia produced by the insertion of ACUPUNCTURE needles at certain ACUPUNCTURE POINTS on the body. This activates small myelinated nerve fibers in the muscle which transmit impulses to the spinal cord and then activate three centers - the spinal cord, midbrain and pituitary/hypothalamus - to produce analgesia.
