The aim of the study is to investigate the efficacy of the thoracic combined spinal epidural anesthesia in breast surgery.


Previous studies of the regional anesthetic techniques such as erector spinae plane block and pectoralis nerve blocks (PECs blocks) additional to general anesthesia have described their use for postoperative analgesia in breast surgery. It has been also reported that these blocks can be used to provide surgical anesthesia in breast surgery . Segmental thoracic epidural anesthesia can be used as an alternative anesthetic technique in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma undergoing breast surgery. It has been also reported that thoracic spinal anesthesia was effective and successful in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery. In this study, efficacy of high thoracic spinal epidural anesthesia in patients undergoing breast surgery will be evaluated.
