Abstract

Background: Erector spinae plane block (ESPB) can provide effective analgesia in pediatric abdominal surgery. Additionally, when used as an analgesic method in abdominal surgery, ESPB may increase regional intra-abdominal tissue oxygen saturation (rSO(2)) throughout the operation. However, the number of related studies conducted on pediatric patients is insufficient.
