Peripheral Nerve Block
The use of liposomal bupivacaine after total knee arthroplasty with a peripheral nerve block may not result in reductions in inpatient intake of opioids, hospital length of stay, or opioid-related complications.
Although high-quality studies on the use of peripheral nerve blocks for the treatment of headache disorders are scarce, results observed in clinical practice support their use.
Addition of an interspace between the popliteal artery and capsule of the posterior knee block and adductor canal block to periarticular injection is associated with less pain after total knee arthroplasty.
Peripheral nerve blocks may reduce postoperative pain and increase patient satisfaction in adults undergoing elective primary hip replacement.
The usefulness of sPNB is limited due to the short duration of action, while a major limitation of cPNB is the significant investment.
