Abstract Introduction Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is used as a part of multimodal analgesia in decreasing pain of lower abdominal wall incision. Local anesthetic instillation of wounds through subcutaneous or subfascial catheters is used to treat postoperative pain in different types of surgery. The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to study the opioid-sparing effect of these two techniques (if any) compared to placebo in women undergoing gynecologic procedures through… Expand
Post-operative bilateral continuous ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane block versus continuous local anaesthetic wound infusion in patients undergoing abdominoplasty
TLDR
Continuous bilateral ultrasound-guided TAP block and continuous local anaesthetic wound infusion significantly decreased total morphine consumption in the first 48 h compared to placebo; however, both treatment techniques were comparable. Expand
Comparative study between ultrasound guided tap block and paravertebral block in upper abdominal surgeries. Randomized controlled trial
TLDR
It was concluded that ultrasound guided transversus abdominis plane block and thoracic paravertebral block were safe and effective anesthetic technique for upper abdominal surgery with longer and potent postoperative analgesia in thoraci paraverTEbral block than transversa abdominis block. Expand
Comparative study between ultrasound guided TAP block and paravertebral block in upper abdominal surgeries
TLDR
It was concluded that ultrasound guided transverses abdominis plane block and thoracic paravertebral block were safe and effective anesthetic technique for upper abdominal surgery with longer and potent postoperative analgesia in thoraci paraverTEbral block than transverse abdominis block. Expand
A Study of the Efficacy of Ultrasound Guided Tap Block Using 0 . 375 % Ropivacaine for Postoperative Analgesia in Patients Undergoing Total Abdominal Hysterectomy
DOI: 10.21276/sjams.2018.6.4.17 Abstract: As important component of the pain experienced by patients after abdominal surgery derives from the abdominal wall incision so the TAP block, as part of aExpand
Transversus abdominal plane block for postoperative analgesia: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized-controlled trials
TLDR
The TAP block can play an important role in the management of pain after abdominal surgery by reducing both pain scores and 24-hr morphine consumption and it may have particular utility when neuraxial techniques or opioids are contraindicated. Expand
Transversus Abdominis Plane Block: Easy procedure, Better Benefit
TLDR
Transversus abdominis plane block is an alternative technique for regional anesthesia that anesthesiologist can provide to patient who are contraindicated for epidural analgesia, but it has some limitations that its analgesia cannot cover visceral pain. Expand
REGIONAL ANAESTHESIA AND ACUTE PAIN
TLDR
In all volunteers, the midpoint of the thigh was proximal to the beginning of the adductor canal, suggesting that an injection performed at this level is in fact a femoral triangle block. Expand
Transversus Abdominis Plane Catheters for Analgesia Following Abdominal Surgery in Adults
TLDR
Although there are promising indications for the benefit of TAP catheter techniques, extrapolation/comparison of results and application to patient care will be better elucidated when there is more standardization of Taper techniques and the methodology for measuring efficacy. Expand
