The Effect of Ultrasound-Guided Erector Spinae Plane Block Combined with Dexmedetomidine on Postoperative Analgesia in Patients Undergoing Modified Radical Mastectomy: A Randomized Controlled Trial.


One of the most common malignancies in women worldwide is breast cancer. Erector spinae plane block (ESPB) can reduce pain after modified radical mastectomy for breast cancer.
