  • (Abstracted from Am J Obstet Gynecol 2023;228:553.e1–553.e8) The transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is an anesthetic technique wherein a local anesthetic solution is into the fascial plane between the transversus abdominis and the internal oblique muscles. The TAP block has been shown to reduce requirements of opioids after surgery; however, it can be time-consuming for use in the operating room setting.
