Modified radical mastectomy (MRM) is the most common surgical treatment for breast cancer. General anesthesia poses a challenge in fragile MRM patients, including cardiovascular instability, insufficient postoperative pain control, nausea and vomiting. Thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB) is adequate for simple mastectomy, but its combination with interscalene brachial plexus block (IBPB) has not yet been proved to be an effective anesthesia method for MRM.
