Used in clinical practice as part of a multimodal analgesic regimen, the transversus abdominis plane block (TAP block) is a relative novel procedure in which local anaesthetic agents are injected into the anatomic neurofascial space between the internal oblique and the transversus abdominis muscle. It allows a significantly prolonged duration of analgesia during the early postoperative stage in abdominal surgery. This regional anesthesia technique provides analgesia to the skin, muscles of the anterior abdominal wall and parietal peritoneum in order to decrease the incision-related pain...

In this report, we describe the case of a premature infant (36 weeks' postgestational age) who underwent left inguinal hernia repair under general anesthesia without the use of any airway device. Anesthesia was induced and maintained with sevoflurane in oxygen and nitrous oxide. An ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane block was performed that provided effective analgesia, obviating the need for opioids in the intraoperative period. The infant's hemodynamics remained stable throughout the surgery. This report also briefly explains the advantages of using a transversus abdominis plane block, compared with neuraxial blockade, for hernia repair surgery...

REVIEW
Jan Jakobsson, Mark Z Johnson
Regional anaesthesia provides effective anaesthesia and analgesia in the perioperative setting. Central neuraxial blocks-that is, spinal and epidural blocks-are well established as an alternative or adjunct to general anaesthesia. Peripheral blocks may be used as part of multimodal anaesthesia/analgesia in perioperative practice, reducing the need for opioid analgesics and enhancing early recovery. Furthermore, regional anaesthesia has increased in popularity and may be done with improved ease and safety with the introduction of ultrasound-guided techniques...

Current 2-D ultrasound technology is unable to perform a midline neuraxial needle insertion under real-time ultrasound guidance using a standard needle and without an assistant. The aim of the work described here was to determine the feasibility of a new technology providing such capability, starting with a study evaluating the selected puncture site. A novel 3-D ultrasound imaging technique was designed using thick-slice rendering in conjunction with a custom needle guide (3DUS + Epiguide). A clinical feasibility study evaluated the ability of 3DUS + Epiguide to identify the epidural needle puncture site for a midline insertion in the lumbar spine...

The recently introduced pectoral nerve (Pecs) block is a simple alterative to the conventional thoracic paravertebral block or epidural block for breast surgery. It produces excellent analgesia and can be used to provide balanced anesthesia and as a rescue block in cases where performing a neuraxial blockade is not possible. In the thoracic region, a neuraxial blockade is often used to manage zoster-associated pain. However, this can be challenging for physicians due to the increased risk of hemodynamic instability in the upper thoracic level, and comorbid and contraindicated medical conditions such as coagulopathy...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound can facilitate neuraxial blockade in patients with poorly defined anatomical surface landmarks, but there are no studies comparing an ultrasound-guided technique with landmark palpation for spinal anaesthesia. The objective of this study was to compare pre-procedural lumbar ultrasonography with landmark palpation to locate the needle insertion point in women with impalpable lumbar spinous processes presenting for caesarean delivery. METHODS: After institutional ethics committee approval, 20 women with impalpable lumbar spinous processes presenting for elective caesarean delivery were recruited...

A patient with previous L3-4 posterior lumbar interbody fusion, pedicle screws instrumentation and L3-4 decompression, was scheduled for left total hip arthroplasty. Two years ago, due to poor landmarks palpation, the patient experienced a failed lumbar puncture after multiple attempts before herniorrhaphy. His plain radiography showed bilateral partial laminectomy at L3-4 level, and between L3 and L4, two posterior pedicle screws connected by metal rods on both sides. This time, we used ultrasound to locate L4-5 interlaminar space in paramedian sagittal oblique view and identified the spine midline by transverse interlaminar view before puncture...

BACKGROUND: Both neuraxial and peripheral regional analgesic techniques offer postoperative analgesia for total hip arthroplasty (THA) patients. While no single technique is preferred, quadriceps muscle weakness from peripheral nerve blocks may impede rehabilitation. We designed this study to compare postoperative ambulation outcome in THA patients who were treated with a new ultrasound-guided fascia iliaca catheter (FIC) technique or intrathecal morphine (ITM). METHODS: We reviewed the electronic health records of a sequential series of primary unilateral THA patients who were part of a standardized clinical pathway; apart from differences in regional analgesic technique, all other aspects of the pathway were the same...

Spinal stenosis is a potentially serious condition that can lead to myelopathies and autonomic instability, both of which, as a result, may complicate anesthetic management. Additionally, neuraxial anesthesia appears to increase the risk of worsened neurological outcomes in this population. A 56-year-old female with spinal stenosis, autonomic dysfunction, and known difficult airway who required anesthesia for repair of a femur fracture is presented. After pre-operative arterial line and femoral block placement, an ultrasound guided subarachnoid block was safely placed...

BACKGROUND: Preprocedural ultrasound may improve the efficacy and safety of epidural catheterization, especially in difficult cases. Most studies of ultrasound-assisted epidural catheterization in the obstetric population are dated and nonblinded with inconsistent designs. This double-blind, randomized controlled study aimed to compare the ultrasound-assisted with the conventional palpation techniques for epidural catheterization in parturients undergoing cesarean delivery. We hypothesized that the use of preprocedural ultrasound would increase the success rate of epidural catheterization at the first needle pass...
