2) Multiple pain relief treatment options are available, such as oral analgesics, intravenous opioids, patient-controlled opioid analgesia, interpleural blocks, intercostal blocks, paravertebral blocks, and epidural analgesia.
Regional analgesic techniques used for children post-thoracotomy to reduce or avoid postoperative opioids previously described include an extrapleural technique for TOFOA surgery (1) and extrapleural (2-5), interpleural (6-10) and epidural (11) local anaesthetic infusion.
Factors contributing to impaired efficacy of interpleural catheters over 'contained' extrapleural catheters (2,3) may therefore apply to 'non-contained' extrapleural catheters.
Issues of assessment are then explored, followed by discussion of treatment strategies for acute pain, including perioperative use of COX-2 agents, patient-controlled analgesia, perioperative epidural analgesia, and interpleural analgesia.
A prospective, randomized comparison of interpleural and paravertebral analgesia in thoracic surgery.
The pleural and interpleural furrows in this species are different.
Pleural and interpleural furrows are almost equally developed and notably closely spaced, corresponding to the shortness of the axial rings.
Interpleural analgesia in addition to a patient-controlled opioid is an alternative in such patients or in those reluctant to consider neuraxial-based techniques.
The pleural furrows run from the axial furrow laterally in a straighter line than the interpleural furrows to meet the latter at the doublural region.
the pleural furrows run parallel to the interpleural furrows.
Other regional analgesic options include the use of field infiltration, intercostal nerve blocks, and interpleural catheters, all of which may have opioidsparing effects.
Prospective randomized trials are needed to compare both the effectiveness and safety of intravenous, interpleural and epidural analgesia in patients undergoing hepatic resection.
