For secondary outcomes, the pain score at rest/ movement up to 48 hours after surgery, the time until the first pain reliever is requested, whether and how often rescue analgesics are administered for 48 hours, the incidence and severity of nausea and vomiting during the 48 hours after surgery, patient's satisfaction with post-pain control and the number of hospital stays were investigated. Overall, the aim of this study is to evaluate the postoperative analgesic effect of quadratus lumborum block in patients undergoing a living donor kidney transplantation under general anesthesia.
