There is limited evidence of the effectiveness of ultrasound-guided techniques to block the saphenous nerve. We therefore undertook a retrospective case series to investigate the efficacy of an ultrasound-guided subsartorial approach to saphenous nerve block.MethodsDuring a four-month period, all patients receiving a subsartorial… CONTINUE READING
