Postoperative pain management after pacemaker insertion routinely uses either opioid agents, nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drugs, or paracetamol. There has been increased interest in opioid-sparing multimodal pain management to minimize postoperative narcotic use. This study aims to assess postoperative pain control and opioid consumption provided by pectoral nerve blocks (PECs) versus standard postoperative pain control in pediatric patients after transvenous subpectoral pacemaker insertion.
