Figure 1: Schematic diagram showing the position of ultrasound probe (P), direction of needle (N) with respect to the incision and the relevant ultrasound anatomy. UMB = umbilicus, XIP = xiphisternum, SC = subcutaneous tissue, EO = external oblique muscle, IO = internal oblique muscle, TA = transversus abdominis muscle, PC = Peritoneal cavity. Arrow points to the transversus abdominis plane. The needle is inserted by “in plane” technique
