Abstract :

We studied the effect of bilateral ilioinguinal nerve block on postoperative analgesia in 30 patients following lower segment caesarean section by pfannensteil incision under General anesthesia. Pain relief was assessed objectively by PR and MAP and subjectively by VAS, PPI and coin scale at ½, 1, 1 ½, 2, 4,6,12, and 24 hrs following the block. The mean PR and MAP were significantly lower at all times and the difference among them in different intervals was statistically significant. All the three pain scales showed lower scores between 1 and 12 hrs. The mean time of initiation of eastfeeding was 204.64±13.82 and the mean time of first order for analgesia was 343.28±15.87.Conclusion–bilateral ilioinguinal nerve block administered using Bupivacaine provides effective analgesia and the mothers are able to east feed earlier and have a more satisfying interaction with their newborn.
