BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Successful blockade of the saphenous nerve using surface landmarks can be challenging. We evaluated the anatomic basis of performing a saphenous nerve block with ultrasound (US) using its relationship to the saphenous branch of descending genicular artery, sartorius muscle, and the adductor hiatus as defined by cadaveric measurements. METHODS Using a total of 9 cadaveric knee dissections, the saphenous nerve and its relationship to the saphenous branch of the… CONTINUE READING
