transversalis fascia plane block

J M López-González, S López-Álvarez, B M Jiménez Gómez, I Areán González, G Illodo Miramontes, L Padín Barreiro
INTRODUCTION: The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of ultrasound-guided transversalis fascia plane block (TFP) compared to anterior transversus abdominis plane block (TAP-A) for post-operative analgesia in outpatient unilateral inguinal hernia repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective observational study conducted on ASA I-II patients. Two groups (TAP-A and TFP), which were given 30ml of 0.25% levobupivacaine prior to surgical incision. The primary endpoint was the post-operative pain evaluated by verbal numerical scale (VRN at rest and movement) at 10, 30, 60, 90min, coinciding with ambulation, and 24hours by telephone...

UNLABELLED: We summarized the evidence for ultrasound (US) guidance for truncal blocks in 2010 by performing a systematic literature review and rating the strength of evidence for each block using a system developed by the United States Agency for Health Care Policy and Research. Since then, numerous studies of US guidance for truncal blocks have been published. In addition, 3 novel US-guided blocks have been described since our last review. To provide updated recommendations, we performed another systematic search of the literature to identify studies pertaining to US guidance for the following blocks: paravertebral, intercostal, transversus abdominis plane, rectus sheath, ilioinguinal/iliohypogastric, as well as the Pecs, quadratus lumborum, and transversalis fascia blocks...

The transversalis fascia plane block is a relatively new truncal block that targets the iliohypogastric and ilioinguinal nerves. It is gaining wider usage for its reliability to block these nerves as compared with the transversus abdominis plane block. The case presented here appears to be the first time that motor weakness has resulted from this block technique. It is suspected that central and proximal spread of local anesthetic toward the psoas muscle may have resulted in a partial lumbar plexus block.

We present two cases of patients who reported quadriceps femoris weakness and hypoesthesia over the anterior thigh after an inguinal hernia repair under transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block. Transient femoral nerve palsy is the result of local anesthetic incorrectly injected between transversus abdominis muscle and transversalis fascia and pooling around the femoral nerve. Although it is a minor and self-limiting complication, it requires overnight hospital stay and observation of the patients. Performing the block under ultrasound guidance and injecting the least volume of local anesthetic required are ways of minimizing its incidence...

Femoral nerve palsy has been reported after percutaneous ilioinguinal field infiltration with general anaesthesia for inguinal herniorrhaphy. The mechanism whereby this could occur was studied in cadaver dissections. It was found that the plane between the transversus abdominis muscle and the transversalis fascia was continuous laterally with the tissue plane deep to the iliacus fascia, which is the plane containing the femoral nerve. Injection of methylene blue 1 ml into this plane resulted in pooling of dye around the femoral nerve...
