Abstract

Background: The primary objective of this study was to assess whether transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is effective as part of multimodal pain management following Caesarean section in an area with limited resources. The study also looked at the advantage of this block in reducing the consumption of morphine and diclofenac postoperatively.
