The use of region­al anes­the­sia in chil­dren rep­re­sents one of the ­most effec­tive meth­ods for per­i­op­er­a­tive anal­ge­sia and post­op­er­a­tive ­pain con­trol. ­Things ­have ­been dra­mat­i­cal­ly ­changed in the ­last two ­decades due to the appear­ance of new saf­er ­drugs and new ­tools; more­over new tech­niques ­were intro­duced show­ing ­their effi­ca­cy. In ­this ­paper we brief­ly ­describe the effi­ca­cy of new ­local anes­thet­ics and adju­vants; we ­review the use of con­tin­u­ous periph­er­al ­blocks and oth­er not ­very dif­fused tech­niques of region­al anes­the­sia.
