Abstract

A unique regional anesthetic technique called erector spinae plane block (ESPB) is utilized to treat thoracoabdominal chronic neuropathic pain and postoperative pain. In our short communication, we have discussed the effectiveness of the ESPB for breast augmentation with silicone gel implantation surgery, particularly in transgender community patients.
