Comparison of ultrasound-guided erector spinae plane block and thoracic paravertebral block for postoperative analgesia after laparoscopic nephrectomy: a randomized controlled non-inferiority clinical trial.


Thoracic paravertebral block offers effective analgesia after laparoscopic nephrectomy but has potential severe complication risks. Erector spinae plane block has been described for analgesia after abdominal surgery. However, there are no prospective randomized trials determining if ultrasound-guided erector spinae plane block is non-inferior to thoracic paravertebral block in terms of analgesia after abdominal surgeries including laparoscopic nephrectomy.
