The primary objective of this study is to determine if the use of Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) blocks reduce early postoperative opioid requirements.
Revision or closure of ostomy is a common elective surgical procedure at The Hospital for Sick Children. A retrospective audit conducted at SickKids demonstrated significant intraoperative opioid use and significant requirements for rescue opioids in recovery.
Concerns exist regarding the relative merits of opioid use in abdominal surgery. Opioids may decrease bowel motility leading to the increased incidence and duration of postoperative ileus. They may be associated with increased rates of post-operative nausea and vomiting and pruritus. Lastly children may under-report their pain or pain may not be recognized by medical staff leading to inadequate provision of analgesia. This suggests that the use of a regional technique may benefit children undergoing revision of ostomy.

Muscles forming the ABDOMINAL WALL including RECTUS ABDOMINIS, external and internal oblique muscles, transversus abdominis, and quadratus abdominis. (from Stedman, 25th ed)
A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
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).
