Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a common chronic pain syndrome that may affect quality of life, daily living activities, and psychological status. Ultrasound (US)-guided rhomboid intercostal block (RIB) is a recently defined plane block and used for chronic pain such as postmastectomy syndrome and MPS. Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of US-guided RIB for the management of pain, quality of life, physical disability, and patient satisfaction in MPS.
