Effective postoperative analgesia after lower segment caesarean section (LSCS) is very important for early ambulation and early breast feeding and has a role to play in decreasing postpartum depression. Quadratus lumborum (QL) block, a fascial plane block, is gaining popularity for pain management in lower abdominal surgeries. The aim of the present study was to compare the ultrasound-guided (USG) transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block and QL block in patients undergoing LSCS under spinal anaesthesia.
