Abstract

(Abstracted from J Clin Anesth, 40:46–50, 2017)

Regional anesthesia techniques are used for acute and persistent postsurgical pain in breast surgery, with pectoral nerves block type II (Pecs) being an easy-to-perform, superficial block technique in which local anesthetic is deposited between the pectoralis major and the pectoralis minor muscle. This distribution of local anesthetics blocks the pectoral, intercostobrachial, III–VI intercostal, and the long thoracic nerves.
