Clinical Trial Summary

Ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane block is now widely used in abdominal surgery. Recently, magnesium sulphate is used as adjuvant to local anesthetics.

Clinical Trial Description

A significant pain experienced by patients after laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery is required so as to block nociceptive transmission from both the abdominal wall incision, and visceral sites.

Using of opioids can result in significant adverse effects, thus delaying early mobilization of patients.

Ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has been used as a satisfactory approach that provides postoperative analgesia. TAP block is safe; it diminishes or replaces the use of opioids; and it has a lower incidence of adverse effects.

Bupivacaine is a medication used to decrease feeling in a specific area. It is used by injecting it into the area, around a nerve that supplies the area, or into the spinal canal's epidural space. Bupivacaine is indicated for local infiltration, peripheral nerve block, sympathetic nerve block, and epidural and caudal blocks.

Magnesium is the fourth most plentiful cation in our body. It may be worthwhile to further study the role of supplemental magnesium in providing perioperative analgesia, because this is a relatively harmless molecule, is not expensive and also because the biological basis for its potential antinociceptive effect is promising.

Magnesium sulphate (MgSO4), N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonist has the potential to be an ideal adjuvant in TAP block. ;
