We are trying to introduce a regional anaesthesia technique to our rib fracture management pathway in our trust and considering ESP catheter placement. We trialled one last week. Does anyone have a recommendation on a catheter of choice for this block? Any tips on placing them for ESP? We used a catheter over needle Pajunk kit last week which was unfamiliar and unimpressive with only 15mm protrusion beyond the tip.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Best wishes,

Hi Sharon, we site a lot of nerve catheters at the rvi in newcastle. Tend to use pajunk catheter through needle catheters. Generally we use pvc for ribs and for those I used coiled tip catheters. I’ve used the tsui catheter over needle catheters before and they can be a bit frustrating.
I would suggest you try some like https://pajunk.com/products/regional-anaesthesia/nerve-blocks/catheter-sets/stimulong-sono-ll/
They do touhy and facet tip needles depending on how much feel you want. They are essentially identical in practice to threading an epidural catheter and it will feel familiar
