Regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine can add significant non-monetary value to a surgical practice and healthcare system in terms of pain relief, reduced incidence of anesthetic- and opioid-related side effects, and faster recovery. Advances in ultrasonic-guided regional anesthesia and analgesia have given clinicians the opportunity to apply new approaches to easily block peripheral nerves. As a result, improvements in outcomes such as analgesia quality, early rehabilitation and patient satisfaction were noted. The use of ultrasound results in faster sensory blocking, shorter performance time, fewer vascular punctures and needle passages. The practice of regional anesthesia has rapidly progressed in recent years with the application of ultrasound which has resulted in a significant improvement in nervous block quality and patient satisfaction. Regional anesthesia has always had a role to play in minimizing peri-operative opioid requirements, but it should no longer be seen as merely an alternative to general anesthesia, rather a complement to an overall multimodal anesthetic strategy.

We welcome laboratory, animal, and human studies, as well as the pre-clinical and clinical data analysis to optimize regional anesthesia technique and outcome. Besides, short papers (such as opinion, letter to the editor, research snapshot, brief research report) and mini review (with or without meta-analysis) that will stimulate continuing efforts to develop a better choice or deliver comprehensive knowledge are also anticipated. Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:

• Addressing the association, mechanism, or effects of regional anesthetic agents and outcomes using laboratory, animal, and human data

• Clinical data of the effects of new regional anesthesia technique on patients’ outcomes and satisfaction

• Laboratory or clinical studies addressing the mechanisms of adjuvant drugs administered for regional anesthesia and analgesia

• Clinical implication for practice in regional anesthesia and analgesia outcome

• Real world data for anesthesia and cancer recurrence

• Randomized controlled trials for regional anesthesia and analgesia outcome

Keywords: Analgesia, Anesthesia, Pain Management, Anesthesiology, Regional Analgesia
