Single Injection, Ultrasound Guided Paravertebral Block for Anesthesia in Breast Surgery.
General anaesthesia is currently the conventional technique used for breast surgery.
Thoracic Paravertebral block (PVB) has been used with multiple injection.
We compared a single injection thoracic PVB with general anaesthesia (GA) in 20 consenting
patients, scheduled for unilateral breast surgery.
Time Perspective: Prospective
The anesthesist evaluated the post-operative pain at rest and in movement with the NRS at 3-6-12-24 hours.
