Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of the ultrasound guided rectus sheath block (RSB) on both intraoperative sevoflurane consumption and postoperative analgesia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pain, Postoperative Procedure: ultrasound guided rectus sheath block Drug: Morphine Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Prospective, randomized study.Forty patients with American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) I-II physical status, aged 3-15 years.Patients are randomly allocated into two groups and are administered general anesthesia and before the beginning of surgery ultrasound guided RSB with 0.2, 0.25% of levobupivacaine and thirty minutes before the surgery the loading dose of morphine of 0.1 intravenously are received in group RSB and group M, respectively. Patient controlled analgesia (PCA) device with 0.01 bolus dose of morphine and 30 minutes lockout interval is set up postoperatively in both groups.
