Sacral surgeries are a relatively rare type of spine surgery associated with a significant amount of perioperative pain. The paraspinal interfascial or erector spinae plane block is currently being practiced with promising results in cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine surgeries. It provides not only effective analgesia but also helps in reducing perioperative opioid consumption. Sacral multifidus plane block is one such variant of paraspinal blocks, which may have an equianalgesic profile. This case report describes a novel application of this block for providing perioperative analgesia in sacral spine surgery.
