In order to facilitate precise localization of motor nerves and motor points, and to increase effectiveness and minimize complications of neurolytic blocks. Locations of motor branching points and motor points of 31 cadavers were measured as relative to medial femoral condyle and mid posterior calf line. Needle insertion points 1.5 centimeters and 0.5 centimeters proximal to the level of medial femoral condyle yielded the best chance (66.25%-76.19%) of finding motor branches to medial… CONTINUE READING
