Background: In recent years, interfacial plane blocks are used to reduce pain and opioid
consumption for multimodal analgesia strategies. Serratus Anterior Plane (SAP) block is widely
used clinical practice, in which local anesthetics are injected into the fascial plane superficial
or deep to the serratus anterior muscle (SAM). This will block the lateral cutaneous branches
of the intercostal nerves, this effectively relieving postoperative pain for procedures such as
breast surgery, thoracoscopic surgery, rib fractures, and minimally invasive heart surgery.
