This study aims to describe and to evaluate the effectiveness (success rate) of a supine ultrasound (US) guided single-puncture sciatic, obturator and femoral neve block technique (SOFT block) in knee surgery.
Under aseptic technique, all the patients will receive US-guided femoral, obturator and sciatic nerve blocks using a single puncture point. All blocks will be performed by an expert anesthetist. The femoral nerve will be blocked lateral to the femoral artery. The obturator nerve will be blocked after it exits the obturator canal (deep to pectineus muscle). While the sciatic nerve will be blocked deep (posterior) to the inferior border of quadratus femoris muscle. The motor block of the femoral, obturator and sciatic nerves and sensory block of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) will be assessed before shifting the patient to the operating room.
The performance time, patient discomfort, technique success rate, the associated successful LFCN block and any complication will be recorded by the assistant. All patients were assessed neurologically before discharge and during the physiotherapy visits for 3 weak after surgery.

Both Ultrasound guided Adductor Canal Block ( ACB) and Femoral Nerve Block (FNB) has been used to provide postoperative analgesia for knee surgeries. To the investigators' knowledge, no co...
This study aims at assessing the effectiveness of combined suprascapular nerve block (SSNB), infraclavicular brachial plexus block (ICB) and supraclavicular nerve block (SCNB) as surgical ...
The purpose of this study is to learn if using an Interspace between the Popliteal Artery and Capsule of the Knee (iPACK) injection technique (also called a "nerve block") that numbs the n...
56 ASA physical status II and III patients, aged 45-75 year, undergoing elective below knee amputation were randomly assigned to receive either sciatic nerve block using a popliteal approa...
Shoulder arthroscopic causes post operative pain that outlasts analgesia provided by single injection nerve blocks.
Blocking the femoral nerve reduces postoperative pain and analgesic consumption in patients who have undergone total knee and hip replacement surgery. A limited number of studies have compared the eff...
In the gluteal and thigh region, the arteria comitans accompanies the sciatic nerve for a short distance, then penetrates the nerve and runs to the lower part of the thigh. There is no study that reco...
Both arthroscopic and open surgery of the shoulder are associated with significant postoperative pain. Use of opioids can result in adverse systemic effects, so a multi-modal analgesic approach and co...
Nerve blockade of the lateral femoral cutaneous (LFC) nerve provides some analgesia after hip surgery. However, knowledge is lacking about the extent of the cutaneous area anesthetized by established ...
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage. (Crenshaw, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 8th ed, p2019)
Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.
An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
