  1. Demographic and perioperative characteristics were taken before and during the surgery. No significant differences were observed in age, body weight, height, BMI, ASA grade, duration of operation, total loss of blood, and infusion volume among groups (P > 0.05). Data are expressed as mean ± SD (39 in the TTP-PECS group and 38 in the TPVB group)
