A prospective study of 30 patients with severe postoperative pain following abdominal surgery, in which the dual TAP block technique has been used successfully to achieve pain relief. A description of ultrasound technique, effectiveness, duration and potential side effects of the pain treatment, with possible recommendations for future use.
This prospective cohort study is designed to describe a novel ultrasound-guided bilateral dual transversus abdominis plane (BD-TAP) block and to evaluate the postoperative analgesic efficacy in a selection of patients having undergone major abdominal surgery under general anaesthesia where neuraxial anaesthesia and/or intravenous administration of analgesics had failed or was unwanted by the patient, or if the placement of an epidural catheter was deemed impossible by the anaesthetist in charge. 30 consecutive patients planned for the study. BD-TAP to be performed bilaterally with a high frequency linear ultrasound probe, with bupivacaine. Success rate, decline in VAS score, postoperative demand of opioids and block performance time to be recorded.

A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
Pain during the period after surgery.
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.
Unilateral or bilateral pain of the shoulder. It is often caused by physical activities such as work or sports participation, but may also be pathologic in origin.
