    Is this plane block effective as a one-off procedure or do you often need to repeat it later?

    Thank you for this useful article. The figure 2 shows the vertebra pointing in the wrong direction. The spinous process should point posteriorly and the body anteriorly. An error?

    How long does this block last before it has to be repeated to maintain pain control?
