Abstract

Postoperative pain
remains as a challenging case despite
improvement of analgesic techniques. It
may also increase the rate of morbidity
and even mortality. Local anesthesia may
decrease the consumption of opioids and
its potential side effects. This study was
aimed to show the role of local anesthesia
in post-sternotomy pain
