AbstractInguinal hernia repair is one of the more common types of surgeries performed. With appropriate techniques, the block provides excellent intraoperative anaesthesia and postoperative analgesia for hernia repair, thereby simplifying anaesthetic surveillance and postoperative care.
Aim and Objectives: To study the effectiveness of field block anaesthesia for inguinal hernia repair in our tertiary care settings.
Material and Method: A clinical study was undertaken for anaesthetising 50 patients aged between 18-60 years of age posted for elective inguinal hernia repair, consenting and co-operative for inguinal field block. Study was conducted at our institute for the period of one year, after getting consent from patients, approved by institutional ethical committee and followed inclusion and exclusion criteria
Results : Study included 50 patients, with mean of age was 39.36 years with SD of 12.68. All patients were hemodynamically stable throughout procedure and surgery. 36 patients had a excellent type of analgesia and relaxation. 8 patients complained of discomfort during surgical handling of the hernial sac or hernia repair. 4 patients were not comfortable with the above measures and needed fentanyl depending upon their body weight. 2 patients had no analgesia Conclusion: Field block is effective technique of anaesthesia for inguinal hernia repair and it provides good quality of analgesia and relaxation intraoperatively.
