Poster Abstract
There are many regional anesthetic techniques available for post-operative analgesia for abdominal surgery and include the TAP block, rectus sheath block, and neuraxial anesthesia. Although relatively new, the ESP block may be advantageous to the above mentioned techniques in that it is easy to perform, is efficacious for providing both somatic and visceral abdominal analgesia, and has a better safety profile than neuraxial techniques. Compared to existing neuraxial options, hemodynamic changes, coagulopathy, and neurological complications tend to be lower with ESP, which makes the ESP block a preferred safer alternative.
