Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has been used for postoperative pain relief in various abdominal surgeries as part of the multimodal analgesic approach. In adults, the duration of action of this block is quite variable, with variable duration of effective analgesia from a single injection. In this study, we present three pediatric abdominal surgery cases, in which TAP block resulted in prolonged duration of analgesia.
