Comparison of postoperative IL-6 and IL-10 levels following Erector Spinae Plane Block (ESPB) and classical Thoracolumbar Interfascial Plane (TLIP) block in a posterior lumbar decompression and stabilization procedure: a randomized controlled trial.


The erector spinae plane block (ESPB) and classical thoracolumbar interfascial plane (TLIP) block can reduce postoperative pain in lumbar surgery. In this study, we compared the efficacy of ESPB and classical TLIP block in providing perioperative analgesia in patients undergoing lumbar posterior decompression and stabilization by comparing postoperative pain, opioid consumption, and IL-6 and IL-10 serum concentrations between ESPB and classical TLIP block.
