Abstract

Thoracic surgery is still associated with severe postoperative pain. In this video tutorial, we present 2 techniques that could be used as an additional method in a multimodal postoperative analgesia strategy for video-assisted thoracic surgery. We present the combination of an epipleural surgical infiltration of a local anesthetic with an ultrasound-guided erector spinae plane block.
