Figure 2: Line diagram depicting the ultrasound‑guided transversus abdominis plane block in the semilateral position in obese patients and α=needle‑beam angle. The subcutaneous fat is pushed medially and, hence, probe handling is easier. In the semilateral position, weare able to achieve better alignment between needle and ultrasound probe and the needle‑beam angle is obtuse. Hence, we have better needle visualization in the semilateral position
