Transversus abdominis plane block may improve analgesia after colorectal surgery; however, techniques remain unstandardized and results are conflicting.
A patient with end-stage amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) presented for Baclofen pump replacement. She underwent a left transversus abdominis plane block to anesthetize the left lower quadrant of the abdomen. No sedatives or analgesics were administered, and the procedure was successfully completed without complication. It is prudent to consider anesthetic plans that avoid complications associated with general or neuraxial anesthesia in patients with ALS. This case report demonstrates successful placemen...
The transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has been increasingly used as a means of abdominal wall analgesia. This study aims to determine if TAP block analgesia provides a benefit in cleft patients undergoing alveolar bone grafting with iliac crest cancellous bone graft.
Colorectal surgery is a focus of enhanced recovery protocols (ERP). The utility of Transversus Abdominis Plane block (TAP) for abdominal surgery has demonstrated effectiveness in ERP, however no direct comparison of epidural versus TAP for non-analgesic clinical factors have been published to date. The primary aim of this study was to compare epidural to TAP for length of stay (LOS) in colorectal surgery.
Perineural dexamethasone has been shown to prolong the duration of local anesthetic (LA) effect in regional anesthesia; however, the use of perineural dexamethasone as an adjuvant to to the transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block remains controversial. This meta-analysis sought to assess the efficacy of dexamethasone in prolonging the TAP block and enhancing recovery after abdominal surgery.
Acute fatty liver of pregnancy is one of the most common causes of fulminant hepatic failure. A 28-year-old G3P1L1A1 presented at 37 weeks with diagnosis of acute fatty liver of pregnancy with grade 3 hepatic encephalopathy. Laboratory findings were suggestive of coagulopathy, metabolic acidosis, and liver and renal dysfunction. Ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane block with ilioinguinal-iliohypogastric nerve block is widely used for postoperative analgesia. We applied these blocks, supplemented w...
To compare the efficiency of laparoscopically-guided transversus abdominis plane block (LTAP) versus port-site local anaesthetic infiltration (LAI) in reducing postoperative pain following laparoscopic excision of endometriosis.
Laparoscopic-Guided Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) Block as Part of Multimodal Analgesia in Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Within an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Program: a Prospective Randomized Clinical Trial.
Despite the ultrasound guidance of transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blocks has allowed greater precision of needle placement in the desired tissue plane, visualization of the abdominal wall muscles can be hindered by morbid obesity and could lead to failed regional anesthesia. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and effect of laparoscopic-guided TAP block in patients undergoing Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and to compare it with port-site infiltration.
Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has facilitated early mobilization. Management of post-operative pain is paramount in these day case procedures. The aim of this study was to compare laparoscopic-assisted transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block with periportal local anaesthetic infiltration in managing post-operative pain.
The transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has become a common regional anesthesia technique for pain management in a wide variety of abdominal procedures. Evidence to support any particular local anesthetic regimen as well as pharmacokinetic and systemic toxicity risks of TAP block remain insufficiently studied in children. The aim of this study was to compare the analgesic effects and investigate pharmacokinetic profile of levobupivacaine after ultrasound-guided TAP block using a low volume/high concentr...
Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blocks are increasingly being utilized in microvascular breast reconstruction. The implications of TAP blocks on specific reconstructive, patient and institutional outcomes remain to be fully elucidated.
The aim of the study was to compare the analgesic efficacy of epidural analgesia and transverse abdominis plane (TAP) block. TAP block has gained popularity to provide postoperative analgesia after abdominal surgery but its advantage over epidural analgesia is disputed.
Several works stress the importance of ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane block (TAPb) for post-operative analgesia and its versatility in all types of abdominal surgery, thanks to laparotomy and laparoscopy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of TAPb on intra- and post-operative analgesia in the first 24 h after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). TAPb is a new local anesthetic technique which provides analgesia after abdominal surgery. It involves injection of local anes...
The objective of this study was to address the efficacy of transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blocks in pain management among women who undergo elective hysterectomy for benign pathology in both open and minimally invasive surgeries. We performed a systematic review by searching for bibliographic citations from Medline, Embase and Cochrane Library. MeSH headings for TAP blocks and hysterectomy were combined and restricted to the English language. We included RCTs comparing TAP blocks to placebo or no block i...
Intravenous patient-controlled opioid analgesia (IVPCA), epidural analgesia and transversus abdominis plane (TAP) infiltrations are frequently used postoperative pain management modalities. The aim of this study was to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis comparing the use of epidural, IVPCA, and TAP infiltrations with liposomal bupivacaine for analgesia in the first 72 h postoperatively in patients undergoing major lower abdominal surgery.
The volume-duration relationship using low concentrations of ropivacaine for peripheral nerve blocks is unknown, even though low concentrations of ropivacaine are increasingly used clinically. We investigated the effect of ropivacaine 0.2% on common peroneal nerve block duration. With ethical committee approval, 60 consenting, healthy volunteers were randomly allocated to receive one of five volumes of ropivacaine 0.2% (2.5, 5.0, 10, 15 or 20 ml) administered by ultrasound-guided, catheter-based injection (...
We evaluated the effect of pre-operative serratus anterior plane block on postoperative pain and opioid consumption after thoracoscopic surgery. We randomly allocated 89 participants to block with 30 ml ropivacaine 0.375% (n = 44), or no block without placebo or sham procedure (n = 45). We analysed results from 42 participants in each group. Serratus anterior plane block reduced mean (SD) remifentanil dose during surgery, 0.12 (0.06) mg.h vs. 0.16 (0.06) mg.h , p = 0.016, and reduced mean (SD) fentanyl cons...
Post-operative pain management in transplant recipients undergoing incisional herniorraphy is challenging. Historically limited to intravenous or oral opioids, alternatives including transversus abdominus plane (TAP) block catheters and thoracic epidural catheters have been introduced. The aim of this study was to determine whether TAP catheters and thoracic epidural analgesia significantly impacted on postoperative pain and opioid usage in transplant recipients undergoing incisional hernia repair.
