Abstract: 

Aim and Background: Thoracotomy is a particularly painful surgery and good pain control is crucial to maximize the ability to cough and breath. The most common methods of post operative pain management are systemic narcotics and epidural administration of local anesthetic agents or narcotics. The purpose of this study was to compare post thoracotomy analgesia of extra plural and epidural catheters.
Methods and Materials: This is a randomized clinical control trial study performed in Alzahra's hospital of medical university of Isfahan.64 patients were randomized in two groups. In group A, 15cc %0.125 bupivacaine before surgery and in group B, 10cc %0.5 bupivacaine at the end of surgery were injected and repeated every hour post operatively. Visual analog scale in two group collected and comparcd.
Findings: VAS in epidural catleter was better than extra plural catheter but this difference is not significant (P<0.05). No significant respiratory complication was reported in both groups.
Conclusions: Due to results this difference is related to position, drainage of chest tube, volume of local anesthetic and type of surgery in the extra plural groups. Because of no significant difference between them we can use this techniques based on experience and preference of anesthesiologist and surgeon.
