PMID: 35110036.


Quadratus lumborum (QL) block has emerged as a good option to be included in multimodal analgesia for abdominal surgeries. The aim of the present study was to compare the effectiveness of the QL block with the more established transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block along with a control group in terms of duration of analgesia as the primary outcome in total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH).
