Comparing Thoracic Epidural Analgesia to Transversus Abdominus Plane Block with Liposomal Bupivacaine for Patients Undergoing Open Oncologic Hepatic Surgery: A Retrospective Review

 

Introduction

 

The objective of this study was to compare postoperative pain control between patients receiving thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) versus those getting four quadrant transversus abdominus plane (TAP) blocks with liposomal bupivacaine for open oncologic hepatic surgery.  The analgesic benefits of epidural analgesia are well established.1-2 Various studies suggest that TAP blocks provide a similar degree of analgesia to epidural analgesia in the first 24 hours after open abdominal surgery3-4, but there is a paucity of literature on the degree of analgesia beyond this timeframe, particularly for open hepatic surgery.
