We assessed the effectiveness of the 3-in-1 continuous femoral block as a form of postoperative pain relief for unilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Sixty patients undergoing elective unilateral TKA under subarachnoid block were randomized into three groups. Postoperative analgesia was provided with a continuous 3-in-1 femoral nerve catheter with 0.15% ropivacaine in group A, a continuous 3-in-1 femoral nerve catheter with 0.2% ropivacaine in group B, or patient controlled intravenous… CONTINUE READING
