The transversalis fascia plane and the quadratus lomborum blocks target the branches of T12-L1 nerves and provide analgesia in patients undergoing surgery involving the corresponding dermatomes. The transversalis fascia is believed to contribute to determine the spread of local anesthetic in such blocks. Nonetheless, the anatomy of this fascia and its possible role in these blocks still have to be precisely defined.
