The surgical transversus abdominis plane block--a novel approach for performing an established technique


, : The surgical transversus abdominis plane block--a novel approach for performing an established technique. Bjog 118(1): 24-27

Although the transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has an established role in providing postoperative analgesia following caesarean section, the technique is not widely used by obstetric anaesthetists. The conventional TAP block is associated with significant technical difficulties and risk of peritoneal, hollow viscus and organ perforation. We report a much simpler technique in which the obstetric surgeon, during open surgery, is able to introduce the TAP block via an intra-abdominal approach, which is technically easier and also obviates the risks associated with the conventional TAP procedure. We believe our technique may be easier, safer and equally effective.
