Total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) is associated with significant postoperative pain that worsens outcomes and prolongs hospital stay. Ultrasound guided erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is a new technique for thoracic analgesia. Few cases have been described for postoperative analgesia in laparoscopy. We describe the use of preoperatory bilateral ESPB at level T10 to provide postoperative analgesia following THL.
