Instillation of bupivacaine through a catheter accurately placed in the extrapleural space prior to closure of a thoracotomy incision provides effective, reliable post-operative analgesia. Its usefulness for further surgery in the post-operative period, in this case wound exploration in a lung transplant recipient, is described.
