Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) block
Real-time ultrasound provides reliable imaging of the three muscular layers of the anterolateral abdominal wall, the TAP, and the underlying peritoneal cavity. Ultrasound also provides real-time assessment of correct needle placement and local anesthetic injection within the TAP, potentially increasing the success rate and safety of the TAP block compared to the landmark-based technique.
