2nd International Conference on Surgery and Anesthesia

Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is a regional aesthetic technique traditionally performed for pain management in the peri-operative setting done either in the operating room pre-operatively or post-operatively in the PACU. The TAP infiltration of local anaesthetic agents works by blocking the abdominal wall neural afferent nerve signalling into the myo-neuro-fascial tissue plane between the internal oblique muscle and transversus abdominis muscle above the peritoneum. Although this procedure can be done with low complication rates under ultrasound guidance, some complications have been attributed to TAP block. But the awareness of the possibility of visceral organ damage if the needle was inadvertently advanced too far has led to our advancements in the technique by doing it under direct visualization with CO2 insufflation in place. We have been using the TAP block as a part of our multi-modal and narcotic sparing technique for postoperative pain treatment for many types of laparoscopic abdominal procedures.
