Transversalis Fascial Plane Nerve Block in Iliac Crest Bone Graft

2014-07-24 14:01:10 | BioPortfolio


Hand or wrist surgery often requires the use of bony material in order to accomplish any associated reconstructive aspects required for the surgery. The iliac crest is often used as the source of bone for such surgery and harvesting from this site is performed simultaneously with the hand/wrist surgery. In terms of anesthesia, patients typically receive a supraclavicular nerve block for the hand/wrist surgery, and a general anesthestic for the bone graft, though spinal block may also be performed. This study will look at the use of a transversalis fascia plane (TFP) nerve block (ie, to numb the nerves going to the iliac crest) in combination with a general anesthetic to see if post-operative pain and opioid consumption is reduced using the TFP block.
