Erector Spine Block (ESB) for Pain Relief in a Patient With Multiple Ribs Fracture
Erector Spine Block is a simple and effective block in controlling chest wall and upper abdominal pain. It is also possible to increase painless period for a few days by placing a catheter. We used this block in a high-risk traumatic patient to reduce the pain of rib fractures.
