INTRAPEC injection with liposomal bupivacaine mixed with bupivacaine can prolong postoperative pectoral spasm control following sub-pectoral breast implantation.
a case report.
This case study reports the use of a liposomal bupivacaine and bupivacaine(Marcaine) mixture as the agent for INTRAPEC injection, leading to prevention of intraoperative and postoperative pectoralis muscle spasm from sub-pectoral breast reconstruction. In 2018, a novel technique described specifically for the purpose of intraoperative as well as post operative pectoralis muscle spasm control was reported, called the INTRAPEC (1). This ultrasound guided injection was instituted prior to surgery theoretically preventing spasm and pain before surgical insult.
