Abstract

Introduction: Currently, local or general anesthesia is commonly applied in patients undergoing percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) procedures; however, the best anesthesia method for PKP remains elusive. This study examined the efficacy of erector spinae plane block (ESPB) in comparison with local anesthesia in terms of postoperative analgesia requirement and pain scores, in patients undergoing kyphoplasty.
