      A prospective study of multimodal cocktail intercostal injection for chest pain relief after costal cartilage harvest for rhinoplasty.
      showed that multimodal cocktail intercostal injection (MCII) was significantly superior to the intercostal nerve block (ICNB) with/without intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (IPCA) for chest pain control after costal cartilage harvest. Other than the limitations described by the authors in the discussion, we would like to remind readers about several issues concerning the design and results of this study, and wish to invite the authors to comment.
