To the Editor We wish to thank Wardhan et al [1][1] for their interest in our study.[2][2] Despite the popularity of continuous thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB), there remains a paucity of information on catheter-tip position and distribution of injectate through the catheter. We believe that

BACKGROUND Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is an invasive surgical procedure for the knee. Quadruple nerve blocks including continuous femoral nerve block and single-injection sciatic, obturator, and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks can provide effective intraoperative anesthesia and analgesia in the early postoperative period. However, severe pain often appears after the effect of single-injection nerve blocks resolves and that is why we conducted two studies. The first st...

BACKGROUND Continuous interscalene brachial plexus block (CISB) provides analgesia after shoulder surgery. However, even a catheter securely fixed at the insertion site may be susceptible to migration, precluding the block from working consistently. We examined to see if catheter tip migration would occur with no catheter-at-skin change after anterior and posterior approaches to CISB in patients undergoing shoulder surgery, and compared the incidence rate and pain scores between approaches and b...

Purpose Thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB) is an established analgesic technique for breast surgery although it is technically challenging. Erector spinae plane block (ESPB) requires less technical expertise and may be an alternative to TPVB. However, whether ESPB has similar analgesic effects to TPVB for breast surgery is still inconclusive. Moreover, information on sensory blockade of ESPB is scarce. Accordingly, we conducted this retrospective propensity-matched study to see if ESPB could pr...

Background Despite the popularity of continuous thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB), there is a paucity of information on catheter tip position and distribution of injectate through the catheter. We observed, in real time, the spread of dye, the catheter tip position and sensory block levels produced with three different (intercostal (IC), transverse process sagittal (TS) and paralaminar (PL)) approaches to ultrasound-guided TPVB in patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. Metho...

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a mostly autosomal recessive genetic disease characterized by progressive muscle weakness from anterior horn degeneration. Nusinersen has recently been approved as a disease-modifying drug for SMA that needs to be administered intrathecally. Its injection is often associated with extreme difficulty since patients with SMA have severe vertebral deformity and may be with vertebral instrumentation. A 21-year-old female with type 2 SMA and spinal deformity underwent ...

BACKGROUND: Quadratus lumborum block (QLB) has recently attracted attention as a part of multimodal analgesia after abdominal surgery. It has been shown that programmed intermittent boluses of local anesthetic can produce better analgesia and wider sensory blockade compared with continuous basal infusion with some peripheral nerve blocks. The present study was conducted to see if this theory holds true for QLB in patients undergoing laparoscopic colorectal surgery. METHODS: Fifty patients underg...
