BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The ability of transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blocks to anesthetize the upper abdomen remains debatable. We aimed to describe the local anesthetic distribution following ultrasound-guided TAP blocks with repeated magnetic resonance imaging investigations and to relate this to the resulting dermatomal anesthesia. METHODS Eight volunteers were included in a randomized, observer-blinded study. Sixty milliliters of ropivacaine 0.375% was administered: 1 injection of… CONTINUE READING
