We hypothesised that the pain relief after knee arthroscopy is comparable in both techniques while the motor function of the quadriceps femoris is preserved with the adductor canal block.
In the adductor canal block (ACB) group, a linear ultrasound probe was placed in the inner thigh.
The main purpose of our study was to test the hypothesis that the predominantly sensory adductor canal blockade (ACB) would facilitate shorter hospital stay after medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (mUKA).
The chief complaint was recreated when palpation of the medial thigh at the adductor canal was performed.
To our knowledge no study reported cost and process outcomes or revision rates and no direct comparison of adductor canal block (with or without selective intraoperative infiltration of posterior knee tissues) versus full protocol HVLIA among patients undergoing TKA has been reported.
