Continuous Erector Spinae Plane Block Using Programmed Intermittent Bolus Regimen versus Intravenous Patient-Controlled Opioid Analgesia Within an Enhanced Recovery Program After Open Liver Resection in Patients with Coagulation Disorder: A Randomized, Co


Postoperative pain after open hepatectomy is significant. Preoperative coagulopathy limits the use of epidural analgesia, the gold standard for pain control in open abdominal surgery. Erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is a novel regional anesthesia technique that has been shown to provide effective analgesia in abdominal surgery. In this study, we compared the analgesic efficacy of patient-controlled continuous ESPB (CESPB) with hydromorphone patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA) after right subcostal incision hepatectomies in hepatocellular carcinoma patients with preoperative coagulopathy.
