Brief Summary:

This prospective randomized controlled trial aims to examine the effect of subcostal transverse abdominis plane block on the postoperative pain and opioid consumption in patients (12y≤ age) who will undergo epigastric cardiac pacemaker operation.

Patients will be allocated to either the SC TAP(subcostal transverse abdominis plane block) group or the control group (no block). Bilateral subcostal transverse abdominis plane block will be performed using 0.25% ropivacaine (0.5mL/kg for each side, MAX 20mL for each side) under ultrasound-guidance at the end of surgery.

The pain score at 10 min after PACU admin, 1, 6, 24 hours after the surgery, the total opioid consumption at 12, and 24 hours after the surgery, the total dose of additional rescue analgesia (intravenous ketololac or nalbuphine) at 12 and 24 hour after the surgery will be recorded.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain score, resting [ Time Frame: at 10 minutes after the PACU admin ]
    Pain score at resting is assessed by Numeric rating scale; A numerical rating scale (NRS) requires the patient to rate their pain on a defined scale. For example, 0-10 where 0 is no pain and 10 is the worst pain imaginable.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain score, coughing [ Time Frame: at 1hour, 6hours, and 24hours after the end of surgery. ]
    Pain score at coughing is assessed by Numeric rating scale : A numerical rating scale (NRS) requires the patient to rate their pain on a defined scale. For example, 0-10 where 0 is no pain and 10 is the worst pain imaginable.

  2. total opioid consumption at 12, 24 hours after the end of surgery [ Time Frame: at 12hours, 24 hours after the end of surgery ]
    total opioid consumption at 12, 24 hours after the end of surgery (IV Nalbuphine 1mg = IV Morphine 1mg = IV Fentanyl 10mcg (0.01mg)

  3. Total additional dose of acetaminophen [ Time Frame: at 12hours, and 24hours after the end of surgery. ]
    Total additional dose of acetaminophen (mg)

  4. Total additional dose of ketorolac [ Time Frame: at 12hours, and 24hours after the end of surgery. ]
    Total additional dose of ketorolac (mg)

  5. The incidence of side effects of analgesic medications (percent) [ Time Frame: within 24 hours after the end of surgery ]
    The incidence of side effects of analgesic medications: Nausea, Vomit, Constipation, Pruritus, Dizziness, Dry mouth, Sedation

  6. The incidence of side effects of ropivacaine (percent) [ Time Frame: within 1 hour after the end of surgery ]
    The incidence of side effects of ropivacaine: Arrhythmia, Hypotension, ST change, Dizziness, Convulsion

  7. Hospital stay (days) [ Time Frame: within 14 days after the end of surgery ]
    Postoperative hospital stay (days)

  8. Neurological Pupil indexTM (NPi) [ Time Frame: at 1 hour after the end of surgery ]
    measured by pupillometer

  9. pupil constriction velocity (CV) [ Time Frame: at 1 hour after the end of surgery ]
    measured by pupillometer
