Erector spinae plane block versus retrolaminar block for postoperative analgesia after breast surgery: a randomized controlled trial.



The newly introduced erector spinae plane block (ESPB) has given anesthesiologists an alternative regional anesthetic technique for thoracic analgesia. Although ESPB and retrolaminar block (RLB) have similar puncture sites, no clinical study comparing ESPB and RLB has been reported. The aim of this study was to compare ESPB and RLB in terms of analgesic efficacy in the context of multimodal analgesia following breast surgery.
