The effect of erector spinae plane block on the use of anesthetic medications in lumbar spine surgery – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article evaluated the effectiveness of erector spinae plane block (ESPB) on reducing the use of anesthetic drugs in lumbar spine surgery. The study included 70 patients undergoing lumbar spine fusion surgery, who were randomly divided into two groups: one group received ESPB and the other served as the control group. The results showed that the use of fentanyl and isoflurane during surgery was significantly lower in the ESPB group compared to the control group. Additionally, the emergence time from anesthesia was shorter, and pain scores in the post-anesthesia care unit were lower in the ESPB group. The study concluded that ESPB under ultrasound guidance is an effective method for reducing the consumption of anesthetics during and after lumbar spine surgery

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: To reduce the drug side effects and facilitate the emergence from anesthesia after complex spine surgery, various methods have been proposed. One of these methods is ESPB, which has been less studied. Hence, we conducted this study to evaluate the effectiveness of ESPB on the use of anesthetic drugs in lumbar spine surgery.

METHODS: In this study, 70 patients undergoing lumbar spine fusion surgery were studied. Patients were randomly divided into two groups: the case group (n=35), in which bilateral ESPB was done, and the control group (n=35). After standard anesthesia protocols, anesthesia was maintained with isoflurane in both groups. Intraoperative isoflurane and perioperative opioid consumption were recorded. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS software version 21.

RESULTS: Intraoperative use of fentanyl in the case group was significantly lower than the control group (14.29±21.5 vs. 65.96±73.33 µg, p<0.001). Furthermore, isoflurane consumption in the intervention group compared to the controls was significantly lower (20.71±5.02 versus 28.83±8.68 mL, p<0.001). Moreover, the emergence time was significantly shorter in the case group than in the control group (8.49±4.30 minutes versus 15.00±4.94, p<0.001). In the post-anesthesia care unit 1 h after surgery, the pain scores in the case group were significantly lower than the controls (p<0.001).

: ESPB under ultrasound guidance is an effective method of regional anesthesia/analgesia for lumbar spine surgery (fusion) by decreasing the consumption of anesthetics during and following the surgery.
