plane (TAP) blocks are also often part of ERAS protocols; they have been shown in at least two randomized controlled trials of abdominal hysterectomy to reduce intraoperative fentanyl requirements and to reduce immediate postoperative pain scores and postoperative morphine requirements (Anesth Analg.

Then, the probe was moved anterolaterally in order to visualize the anterolateral margin of the QL and the aponeurosis of the two abdominal wall muscles (IO: internal oblique muscle; TA: transversus abdominis
Changes in recruitment of transversus abdominis

As the dissection was conducted layer by layer from the back, after punching through the skin, the laparoscope could go through superficial fascia, latissimus dorsi, obliquus internus abdominis, transversus abdominis
, transverse fascia and extraperitoneal fat layer and finally reached the retroperitoneal space (Fig.
