Organisation Name: investigator initiated study.
Overal Status: Planned
Start Date: 2019-01-01
Lead Sponsor: investigator initiated study.
Brief Summary: This is an investigator-initiated prospective randomized open label non-inferiority trial comparing the thoracic epidural (TEA) with the Erector Spinae Plane block (ESP) as regional anesthesia technique for VATS-surgery. The ESP-block is recently introduced in clinical practice as an easy, safe and reliable alternative to the thoracic epidural. This new technique injects local anesthetic within a plane beneath the erector spinae muscle to achieve analgesia (6).
A total of 90 patients are being randomly allocated to ESP (study group) or TEA (control group). Patients will be followed until 48 hours after surgery or until discharge from the hospital. Primary outcome is the Quality of Recovery 15 (QoR15) score. We hypothesize that the ESP is equally as effective as a TEA, without the disadvantages (bedrest, urinary catheter, rare but serious neurologic adverse events).
