Key points

  • Simple peripheral blocks, used in the correct situation, can provide analgesia for a variety of surgical indications and have minimal haemodynamic effects.
  • The key to understanding nerve blocks of the abdominal wall is an understanding of the anatomy.
  • These blocks only provide analgesia to the abdominal wall and not the abdominal viscera.
  • Regional anaesthesia of the abdominal wall has the ability to control pain effectively and allow earlier mobilization.
  • Ultrasound guidance can assist in localization of tissue planes and aid successful nerve block.
