Transversus Abdominis Plane(TAP) Block, Local Infiltration and Intravenous Dexketoprofen in Inguinal Hernia Repair

2020-01-18 10:35:47 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates the compare the effects of ultrasound guided TAP block, local anesthetic infiltration to the incision line and intravenous dexketoprofen on postoperative analgesic efficacy and rescue tramadol consumption in inguinal hernia repairs.


Currently, multimodal techniques are used in inguinal hernia repairs in addition to pharmacological and regional techniques for postoperative analgesia.TAP block is performed on the principle of hydrodissection of the fascia between the internal oblique and transversus abdominis muscles of the abdominal wall muscles with local anesthetic drugs. Local anesthetic drugs provide analgesic effect up to 24 hours in the postoperative period by blocking the T6-L1 nerves in the facial plane. Local anesthetic infiltration which is one of the regional anesthetic techniques, is another method of postoperative analgesia. intravenous analgesic drug is also used as pharmacological postoperative analgesia method in most clinics.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Muscles forming the ABDOMINAL WALL including RECTUS ABDOMINIS, external and internal oblique muscles, transversus abdominis, and quadratus abdominis. (from Stedman, 25th ed)

A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).

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.

A local anesthetic that is chemically related to BUPIVACAINE but pharmacologically related to LIDOCAINE. It is indicated for infiltration, nerve block, and epidural anesthesia. Mepivacaine is effective topically only in large doses and therefore should not be used by this route. (From AMA Drug Evaluations, 1994, p168)

A local anesthetic that is similar pharmacologically to LIDOCAINE. Currently, it is used most often for infiltration anesthesia in dentistry. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p165)
