Due to the complex breast innervation, postoperative analgesia after breast surgery is a challenge for the anesthesiologists. The erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is a newly defined promising technique for this purpose. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the analgesic efficacy of the ultrasound-guided ESPB in breast surgery, monitoring its effect on the postoperative opioid consumption.
