Postoperative pain after cardiothoracic surgery can be a significant problem interfering with recovery, yet difficult to manage due to the sedating effects of opiates. These patients frequently have associated postoperative pulmonary changes and are at risk of respiratory depression with opioid analgesia. The ultrasound-guided transversus thoracic muscle plane block (TTMPB) is a recently described regional anesthetic technique showing improvements in postoperative pain management. Further investigation is needed to establish the potential of the TTMPB as an analgesic modality in congenital cardiothoracic surgery in patients under the age of 18.

Poststernotomy pain is a complication of cardiac surgery. Poorly controlled pain is associated with myocardial ischemia, cardiac arrhythmias, hypercoagulability, pulmonary complications, a...
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 spin...
Serratus plane block (SPB) was first described in 2013 by Blanco and designed to primarily block the thoracic intercostal nerves. And this block provides sufficient analgesia lateral anter...
Erector spinae plane block is new interfascial plane block, and can be applied to management of thoracic neuropathic pain syndromes. The target of needle is deeper(or anterior) to the erec...
The investigators aimed to assess Ultrasounde- guided serratus anterior plane block is not inferior with paravertebral block in acute postoperative pain following thoracic surgery.
The thoracic epidural block and thoracic paravertebral block are widely used techniques for multimodal analgesia after thoracic surgery. However, they have several adverse effects, and are not technic...
Erector spinae plane (ESP) block is a novel regional anesthesia technique and gaining importance for postoperative pain management. Since it was first described, the clinicians wonder if this new simp...
Use of a locoregional analgesia technique, such as the ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane block (TAPb), can improve postoperative pain management. We investigated the role of TAPb in roboti...
Chronic pancreatitis is a common cause of recurrent chronic abdominal pain that utilizes significant health care resources. Pain in chronic pancreatitis can be of two types. Visceral pain occurs durin...
Inflammation of a transverse portion of the spinal cord characterized by acute or subacute segmental demyelination or necrosis. The condition may occur sporadically, follow an infection or vaccination, or present as a paraneoplastic syndrome (see also ENCEPHALOMYELITIS, ACUTE DISSEMINATED). Clinical manifestations include motor weakness, sensory loss, and incontinence. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1242-6)
Acute pain that comes on rapidly despite the use of pain medication.
A clinical syndrome with acute abdominal pain that is severe, localized, and rapid onset. Acute abdomen may be caused by a variety of disorders, injuries, or diseases.
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 syndrome characterized by acute OPTIC NEURITIS in combination with acute MYELITIS, TRANSVERSE. Demyelinating and/or necrotizing lesions form in one or both optic nerves and in the spinal cord. The onset of optic neuritis and myelitis may be simultaneous or separated by several months. (J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1996 Apr;60(4):382-387)
Pain is a feeling (sharp or dull) triggered in the nervous system which can be transient or constant. Pain can be specific to one area of the body eg back, abdomen or chest or more general all over the body eg muscles ache from the flu. Without pain ...
