Figure 1: (a) Positions of ultrasound linear probe and nerve block needle (BN) for erector spinae plane (ESP) block targeting of the transverse process (TP) at the incision line (IL) level in a representative patient situated in a lateral decubitus position just prior to starting video-assisted thoracic surgery for lung cancer. (b) Corresponding ultrasound image during ESP block obtained with use of linear ultrasound probe (8–13 MHz). A mixture of local anesthetic and low-molecular weight dextran (LA-LMWD) was spread on the layer above the TP
