For the purpose of assessing the spread of the local anaesthetic after injecting it between abdominal muscles on both sides, the investigators will test if the patient can feel a change in the perception of cold and warm, as well as being pricked with a blunt needle. The investigators will also take several blood samples, together with routine samples, to measure the concentration of the local anesthetic in the blood.

This study attempts to learn about the effectiveness of a modification to the Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) block that works by anaesthetizing the sensory afferents of the abdominal wa...
The primary objective of this study is to determine if the use of Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) blocks reduce early postoperative opioid requirements.
Pain control after surgery is important for patient well-being and recovery. We are interested in determining whether we can improve the duration of action of a local anesthetic procedure ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a supplemental Transversus Abdominis Plane block administered intraoperatively improves the postoperative parameters in patients undergoin...
The transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is a regional anesthetic technique for post operative pain control after abdominal surgical procedures. Its effectiveness in children undergoing...
The analgesic effect and duration of a transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block remain controversial. Transversus abdominis plane blocks are effective for somatic/incisional pain but do not provide ana...
To describe and assess the ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block feasibility in calf cadavers, to compare two injection volumes and to evaluate possible undesired solution spreads.
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 t...
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 direc...
Muscles forming the ABDOMINAL WALL including RECTUS ABDOMINIS, external and internal oblique muscles, transversus abdominis, and quadratus abdominis. (from Stedman, 25th ed)
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.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
Imaging methods that result in sharp images of objects located on a chosen plane and blurred images located above or below the plane.
A malocclusion in which maxillary incisor and canine teeth project over the mandiblar teeth excessively. The overlap is measured perpendicular to the occlusal plane and is also called vertical overlap. When the overlap is measured parallel to the occlusal plane it is referred to as overjet.
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
