Local Infiltration Analgesia
Factors influencing peak plasma total ropivacaine concentration after local infiltration analgesia in patients undergoing total knee arthroscopy included age, weight, creatinine, and female sex.
In patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty, sciatic nerve block plus femoral nerve block was more effective for pain relief than local infiltration analgesia plus femoral nerve block.
