analgesia with bupivacaine and MgS.
is achieved by injection of local anesthetic in the space just lateral to the spinal canal, where the spinal nerves emerge from the intervertebral foramina, and results in ipsilateral segmental, sensory and sympathetic nerve blockade (3).

versus pectoral nerve block for analgesia after breast surgery," Egyptian Journal of Anaesthesia, vol.
As an alternative to cervical epidural anesthesia, thoracic paravertebral block
(TPVB) appears like a viable option that has shown some beneficial effects on postoperative pain intensity, perioperative opioid consumption, and prevention of chronic postsurgical pain for patients undergoing breast surgery; however, results vary substantially across studies and there is hardly any data available on the use of TPVB as the sole method of anesthesia for performing breast surgery while patients are awake .
During the period from previous follow up examination, the patient had received one course of lidocaine with methylprednisolone (paravertebral block
