BACKGROUND The most effective ropivacaine concentration for femoral infusion after total knee arthroplasty is currently ill defined. We designed the present study to compare ropivacaine in three different concentrations (0.1, 0.2, and 0.3%) to evaluate analgesic quality, when administered as a continuous infusion with frequent infusion adjustments in patients receiving a combined femoral and sciatic nerve block. Secondary aims were to evaluate side effects such as motor blockade, rehabilitation… CONTINUE READING
