The purpose

The ambulatory management after laparoscopic hysterectomy is a reality in our service, where 90% of hysterectomies are laparoscopically done and 80% of these are managed on an ambulatory basis with shorter hospital stay ;less than 12 hours. (OALOS 9.41 + / - (1.79) range from 5 to 12 hours and POLE 5.38 + / - (1.8) range from 2 to 9 hours) So far the immediate analgesic management has been made systemically, and the satisfaction reported by patients was high, even though some patients require longer stay in recovery and need higher doses of analgesics before their discharge criteria, allowing an optimal ambulatory management. There are several treatment options that theoretically could be used but the results have been variable and have failed to demonstrate the expected benefit. The Transversus Abdominis Plane Block consists in the deposition of local anesthetic in the plane between the internal oblique and transverse abdominal, looking to infiltrate the spinal nerves at this level, so the innervation to the skin, muscles and the parietal peritoneum will be interrupted. The TAP Block was first described in 2001 , based on anatomy marks techniques of the peripheral nerves and was developed and evaluated later by McDonnell et al.
