Thoracotomy operations are known to be painful surgical procedures, so providing effective intraoperative and postoperative analgesia is so important for all anaesthesiologists. Ineffective pain management interferes with deep breathing, coughing, and remobilization resulting in atelectasis and pneumonia.

Ultrasound-guided ESP block is a myofascial plane block that provides analgesia for thoracic or abdominal segmental innervation depending on the level of the injection site. Thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) is considered the gold standard analgesic technique for thoracic surgeries. But the invasiveness of this technique, the rare but serious neurologic complications and the failure rates up to 30% are the disadvantages of epidural analgesia


The aim of this study is to compare the effect of different blocks as TEA, erector spinae block or paravertebral block on improving peri-operative analgesia and post-operative outcome in pulmonary resection in adult patients.
