The Effect of Intraoperative Transversus Abdominis Plane Blocking on Postoperative Pain After Laparoscopic Transabdominal Pre-peritoneal (TAPP) Groin Hernia Repair.



Managing postoperative pain even after laparoscopic groin hernia repair still remains an interesting challenge for clinicians especially for patients of high risk. Plenty of operative techniques and analgesic methods have been proposed in order to minimize postoperative pain after laparoscopic groin hernia repair. The aim of the present study is to compare transverse abdominis plane (TAP)-block with local analgesic infiltration at trocar entry sites in the terms of reducing postoperative pain.
