Clinical Trial Summary

Modified Perichondral Approach Thoracoabdominal Nerve (M-TAPA) block is a novel block that provides effective analgesia of the anterior and lateral thoracoabdominal walls during laparoscopic surgery, in which local anesthetic is applied only to the lower side of the perichondral surface. M-TAPA block is a good alternative for analgesia of the upper dermatome levels and the abdominal lateral wall, and may be an opioid-sparing strategy with satisfactory quality improvement in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery.


Clinical Trial Description

Modified Perichondral Approach Thoracoabdominal Nerve (M-TAPA) block is a novel block that provides effective analgesia of the anterior and lateral thoracoabdominal walls during laparoscopic surgery, in which local anesthetic is applied only to the lower side of the perichondral surface. M-TAPA block is a good alternative for analgesia of the upper dermatome levels and the abdominal lateral wall, and may be an opioid-sparing strategy with satisfactory quality improvement in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery. M-TAPA block provides analgesia at the level of T5-T11 in the abdominal region. Sonoanatomy is easy to visualize and the spread of local anesthetic can be easily seen. Analgesia occurs in several dermatomes thanks to the cephalocaudal spread of the local anesthetic solution. There are studies in the literature investigating the effectiveness of M-TAPA block for post-operative pain management in bariatric surgery. In this study, the investigators aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of M-TAPA block for postoperative analgesia management after laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery.Primary aim is to compare the postoperative pain scores (VAS), and secondary aim is to compare the postoperative rescue analgesic use and postoperative opioid consumption, and the side effects (allergic reaction, nausea, vomiting) associated with opioid use. ;
