Figure 1: Line diagram depicting the ultrasound‑guided transversus abdominis plane block in the supine position in obese patients and α=needle‑beam angle. The needle‑beam angle in the supine position is acute and, therefore, needle visualization is difficult. Also, the handling of the probe is difficult in view of the overhanging subcutaneous fat tissue in the flank region
