Abstract: Surgical procedure on thoracic and upper abdominal region result in most severe postoperative pain and if treated inadequately or inappropriately result in higher incidence of postoperative complication and physical morbidity.

We concluded that it is the technique of choice for adequate analgesia in the immediate postoperative period following the thoracic and abdominal surgeries, where due to pain severe respiratory embarrassment, increase morbidity, delayed recovery, prolong hospital stay was anticipated.
