Two ultrasound guided techniques to give postoperative pain relief to the patients following abdominal surgeries would be compared using scoring systems for pain relief and scientific methods. while one technique is routinely used, other i.e quadratus lumborum has been recently described and relies on posterior deposition of the drug. Both the techniques are safe and ultrasound imaging is to be used for guidance.

The purpose of this research study is to find the best way to decrease pain in children whom have had low abdominal surgery. Investigators will perform two technique of trunk block; Transv...
Comparison of two types of analgesia after cesarean section. All patients will anaesthetised with spinal technique. Ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane or quadratus lumborum blo...
The Quadratus Lumborum block (QLB) was first described by Blanco in 2007. The main advantage of QLB compared to the Transversus Abdominis Plane block (TAP) is the extension of local anesth...
This study attempts to learn about the effectiveness of a modification to the Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) block that works by anaesthetizing the sensory afferents of the abdominal wa...
In this randomized, controlled, observer-blinded study we plan to evaluate ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block for postoperative pain management in patients undergoin...
To describe the ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block using a subcostal oblique approach in dog cadavers and to evaluate the spread of a methylene blue solution using a multiple-in...
Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is a popular technique for post-operative analgesia in abdominal surgeries. The aim of the study was to evaluate the relative efficacy of bupivacaine versus rop...
Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is a fascial plane block providing post-operative analgesia in patients undergoing surgery with infra-umbilical incisions. We evaluated analgesic efficacy of TA...
Although many reports describe the usefulness of the rectus sheath block (RSB) in the umbilical hernia repair, the efficacy of the transversus abdominis plane block (TAPB) is rarely reported. The purp...
We hypothesized that preoperative (pre-op) ultrasound (US)-guided posterior transversus abdominis plane block (TAP) and US-guided ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerve block (ILI+IHG) will produce a ...
Muscles forming the ABDOMINAL WALL including RECTUS ABDOMINIS, external and internal oblique muscles, transversus abdominis, and quadratus abdominis. (from Stedman, 25th ed)
An area occupying the most posterior aspect of the ABDOMINAL CAVITY. It is bounded laterally by the borders of the quadratus lumborum muscles and extends from the DIAPHRAGM to the brim of the true PELVIS, where it continues as the pelvic extraperitoneal space.
The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
Pain is a feeling (sharp or dull) triggered in the nervous system which can be transient or constant. Pain can be specific to one area of the body eg back, abdomen or chest or more general all over the body eg muscles ache from the flu. Without pain ...
