Abstract

We aimed to share our experience with erector spina plan block for postoperative analgesia after hydatid cyst operation in a six-year-old girl. Erector spina plan block is a new interfasial block defined by Forero in 2016. It has been reported that it can be used effectively in many different indications. Ultrasound guided erector spina plan block is a method that can be applied for postoperative analgesia after thoracotomy.
