BACKGROUNDThree different sites of needle insertion have been proposed for ilioinguinal-iliohypogastric (ILIH) nerve block. This double-blind study was designed to assess the quality of analgesia produced from these different sites.
One hundred and thirty-two children of ASA grade I and II were randomly allocated into four groups to receive no nerve block (control group
