Martin Vedel Nielsen

Junior Doctor, ph.d. student

In my Ph.D. study, we have developed a completely new ultrasound-guided blockade type (the costotransverse block) specifically for (peri) postoperative analgesic treatment for significant breast cancer surgeries. The blockade exploits the positive effects of the thoracic paravertebral blockade but with a much smaller risk profile. Our opinion is that our new blocking is faster, safer, and easier to learn – and we hope that the technique can be quickly adapted in everyday life nationally and internationally.

Improving postoperative pain management using ultrasound-guided nerve blockages. I work primarily with the Transmuscular Quadratus Lumborum (TQL) blockade, which is connected with abdominal surgery. Through various clinical trials, we investigate the effect of the TQL blockade on different types of surgery with an expectation that we can reduce postoperative morphine consumption with minimal side effects for patients.

My primary focus is to optimise postoperative pain management for patients undergoing breast cancer surgery. By a multimodal approach consisting of systemic analgesics and nerve blockades, we aim to establish the foundation for an early rehabilitative period with minimal pain and minimise the dependence on postoperative opioid treatment.
