BACKGROUND: Perineural dexamethasone has gained popularity in regional anesthesia to prolong analgesia duration. However, uncertainty remains regarding the optimal perineural dose. Clarification of this characteristic is of significant importance as the administration of dexamethasone may lead to dose-dependent complications. The objective of this meta-analysis was to define the optimal perineural dexamethasone dose to prolong analgesia after brachial plexus blockade for adult patients undergoin...

Previous meta-analyses of the transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block have examined a maximum of 12 articles, including fewer than 650 participants, and have not examined the effect of ultrasound-guided techniques specifically. Recently, many trials that use ultrasound approaches to TAP block have been published, which report conflicting analgesic results. This meta-analysis aims to evaluate the analgesic efficacy of ultrasound-guided TAP blocks exclusively for all types of abdominal surgeries i...

One of the most fundamental, 1 yet controversial, tenets of regional anesthesia practice has been the adage “no paresthesia, no anesthesia.” Implicit to this concept is the requirement for direct needle-nerve contact to achieve a successful block. The advent of ultrasound (US) guidance for peripheral nerve blockade (PNB) has enabled providers to position the needle tip purposefully as close as possible to, and even inside, the target nerve. Consequently, much of the contemporary regional anesthe...

Background Despite the laparoscopic approach, patients can suffer moderate to severe pain following bariatric surgery. This randomized controlled double-blinded trial investigated the analgesic efficacy of ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blocks for laparoscopic gastric-bypass surgery.
