Brief Summary:
The importance of multimodal analgesia for postoperative pain management is well known and regional anesthesia techniques are commonly prefferred to provide better analgesia. Erector spinae plane block (ESB) is a new defined and effective regional anesthesia technique. But two injections can be unconfortable for some patients. With this study, we aimed to compare the analgesia effect of bilateral and unilateral ESP block for laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Bilateral
Bilateral ESP block will be performed
Procedure: Bilateral ESP Block
Bilateral ESP Block will be performed at T8

Device: Intravenous Morphine patient controlled analgesia device
24 hour morphine consumption will be recorded

Active Comparator: Unilateral
Unilateral ESP block will be performed
Procedure: Unilateral ESP Block
Unilateral ESP Block will be performed at T8 (right side)

Device: Intravenous Morphine patient controlled analgesia device
24 hour morphine consumption will be recorded




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Morphine consumption [ Time Frame: preoperative 24th hour ]
    Morphine consumption will be recorded


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Numeric Rating Scale [ Time Frame: postoperative 24th hour ]
    A NRS involves asking the patient to rate his or her pain from 0 to 10 (11 point scale) with the understanding that 0 is equal to no pain and 10 is equal to worst possible pain.
