Implementation of fast-track rehabilitation surgery was essential in patient care, specially in oncological point.

In this way, uses of the technic of local anesthesia, include epidural analgesia, was essential, but this one is associated with few complications. Emergence of new technic of anesthesia with a comparative analgesia and without side effects should be a better alternative than epidural analgesia. Thus, bilateral rectus sheath block has been reported to be effective in management of postoperative pain.

After signing of the informed consent, two postoperative analgesia techniques were investigated in patients undergoing midline laparotomy.

The main objective of this study is to compare the influence of analgesic technique on the Quality of Recovery-15 score. The study design was a prospective, randomized trial with 2 parallel arms (epidural analgesia vs bilateral rectus sheath block).
