In addition to that, evidence concerning alternative analgesia techniques to manage post pain is deficient. This research aims at evaluating the effect of postoperative regional scalp block (RSB) versus intravenous for analgesia in adult patients under general . Patients were automatically divided into two groups with 15 patients in each, Group B: postoperative RSB was done after the end of skin closure and before emergence from general , Group C: control group: in which standard analgesia was given in the form of intravenous with no block. This study included patients with brain were admitted to Zagazig University Hospitals. We gathered the cases in the time between March 2018 and March 2020. Results: the results displayed highly significant differences between RSB group and control group. Postoperative RSB showed advantages over standard analgesia in the point of more significant reduction of response to pain in the form of heart rate and blood pressure , decrease consumption, lower Visual Analogue Score(VAS), Postoperative RSB can be performed easily in a short time with very high success rate allowing better postoperative control of , less postoperative pain. We recommend using postoperative RSB in as a gold standard in our hospital to get the advantages as mentioned above.
