1. An analysis of 400 cases of thoracoplasty is presented. 2. A method anaesthesia is presented which fulfills all the requirements considered essential for anaesthesia in thoracoplasty. Efforts have been made to prove that in a properly prepared case a correctly given regional analgesia is ideal for thoracoplasty particularly in pur country where it is so difficult to get trained anaesthetists and the number of patients is so great. 3. Bleeding is less under regional anaesthesia. 4. No special complications in this series were noticeable. 5. There were only 4 deaths, but none attributable to anaesthesia as such.
