Standard care will be identical in both groups. The only difference will be that one group will receive an erector spinae plane block and the other will not. Airway management strategy will be at the discretion of the treating anaesthesiologist. However, as patients will be in the prone position, all patients will be intubated with a reinforced endotracheal tube. Ventilation strategy, choice of haemodynamic monitoring and venous access will also be at the discretion of the attending anaesthesiologist. The haemodynamic goal will be to maintain systolic blood pressure within 20% of the baseline. Persistent intraoperative elevations above this point will trigger oxycodone administration intravenously. The frequency and dosage of this will be at the discretion of the treating anaesthesiologist.
