Refining the course of the thoracolumbar nerves: A new understanding of the innervation of the anterior abdominal wall
Previous descriptions of the thoracolumbar spinal nerves innervating the anterior abdominal wall have been inconsistent. With modern surgical and anesthetic techniques that involve or may damageExpand

Determination of spread of injectate after ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane block: a cadaveric study.
BACKGROUND The transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is a new regional anaesthesia technique that provides analgesia after abdominal surgery. It involves injection of local anaesthetic into theExpand

Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 1 expressing corneal sensory neurons can be subdivided into at least three subpopulations
The cornea is innervated by three main functional classes of sensory neurons: polymodal nociceptors, pure mechano-nociceptors and cold-sensing neurons. Here we explored transient receptor potentialExpand
