Periarticular Injection With or Without Adductor Canal Block Improves Pain Control After Total Knee Arthroplasty

Anesthesiology News—October 1, 2017

Anesthesiology News featured a study by HSS anesthesiologist Enrique A. Goytizolo, MD, stating that the combination of adductor canal block and periarticular injection led to increased patient satisfaction for those who had total knee arthroplasty.

"We hypothesized that the combination of adductor canal block and periarticular injection with an accelerated rehabilitation protocol would allow patients to reach the physical therapy discharge criteria…a half day faster than with the periarticular injection alone," said Dr. Goytizolo.

"At our institution, we do over 4,000 knee replacements per year, so it’s important for us to send patients home sooner…. This study demonstrated that both of these approaches are viable techniques and have the same basic results in terms of discharge," he added.
