In breast surgery, regional anesthesia has been mainly used for postoperative analgesia rather than primary anesthesia. Serratus anterior plane block is a new method for ultrasound-guided thoracic wall block, which is less invasive, and relative safe than conventional regional anesthetic techniques. We report a case of breast surgery under serratus anterior plane block with monitored anesthesia care in a 78-year-old patient with a medical history of cardiopulmonary resuscitation due to stress-induced cardiomyopathy caused by pneumonia.
Key Words: Breast Surgery; monitored anesthesia care; Serratus anterior plane block
