BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES This prospective study compared the efficacy and adverse effects after knee surgery of ropivacaine 0.2% administered as patient-controlled femoral analgesia (PCFA), as a continuous femoral infusion (Inf), or as both (PCFA+Inf). METHODS Before general anesthesia, 140 adults scheduled to undergo major knee surgery received a sciatic/fascia iliaca nerve block with 0.75% ropivacaine (40 mL). After surgery, they were randomly assigned to receive, through the femoral… CONTINUE READING
