Use of transversus abdominis plane block as an anesthetic technique in a high risk patient for abdominal wall surgery
Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block produces a reversible blockade of peripheral nerves that provides sensation to the lower abdominal wall from T9 to L1. It has been successfully used as a part of postoperative multimodal analgesia in abdominal surgery since 2001, but its role as a sole anesthetic agent has not been defined
