Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Regional anaesthesia has always been a fundamental option in pain management. The advent of new anaesthetics and ultrasound guidance has permitted an increased diffusion of regional anaesthesia among practitioners and its integration into a multimodal strategy pain management strategy. As a consequence, we have also gained deeper knowledge of anatomy and diffusion kinetics after anaesthetic blocs and new techniques are being increasingly developed.

This Special Issue is dedicated to regional anaesthesia and will include the following topics:

  • Acute pain and perioperative medicine,
  • Oncoanaesthesia,
  • Chronic pain,
  • Intensive care, 
  • Emergency pain,
  • Pediatric pain,
  • Anatomy and techniques, 
  • Pharmacology;
  • Education.

We welcome the following types of articles:

  • Epidemiologic studies,
  • Meta-analyses, 
  • Systematic reviews, 
  • Original articles,
  • Case reports;
  • Pharmacology studies.
