Application Examples

Interscalene Brachial Plexus Block



Femoral Block

A femoral nerve block is a basic nerve block technique that is easy to master, carries a low risk of complications, and has a significant clinical applicability for surgical anesthesia and post-operative pain management. This block is well suited for surgery such on the anterior thigh, knee, quadriceps tendon repair, and postoperative pain management after femur and knee surgery. When combined with a block of the sciatic nerve, anesthesia of almost the entire lower extremity from the mid-thigh level can be achieved. The success rate of this block for surgery is very high, nearing 95%.





Popliteal Block

The popliteal nerve block is a block of the sciatic nerve in the popliteal fossa with the patient in the prone position. The block is ideal for surgeries of the lower leg, particularly the foot and ankle.  It anesthetizes the same dermatomes as both the

anterior and lateral approaches to the sciatic nerve.  Unlike more proximal approaches to the sciatic nerve, the popliteal nerve block preserves hamstring function, allowing easier ambulation of the postoperative patient. Even so, patients should be cautioned against bearing weight on the blocked lower extremity for 24 hours, as with all blocks of the sciatic nerve.




Clinical Studies

"Two previous randomized, controlled trials reported that continuous femoral nerve blocks (CFNB) provide superior analgesia compared with IV patient-controlled analgesia (IV-PCA), analgesia compareable with that of continuous lumbar epidural analgesia, accelerated recovery of physical function, and reduced hospital LOS."



"Continuous peripheral nerve block (CPNB) analgesia, regardless of catheter location, provided superior postoperative analgesia and fewer opioid-related side effects when campared with opioid analgesia."
