Efficacy of superficial cervical plexus block versus cervical retrolaminar block both combined with auriculotemporal nerve block in parotid surgeries.

This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of cervical retrolaminar block (RLB) as an alternative to SCPB both, used in combination with auriculotemporal nerve (ATN) block, in parotid surgery.
