[Comparative assessment of prolonged femoral nerve blockade and epidural analgesia for postoperative pain in total knee joint arthroplasty].

[Article in Russian]


The study deals with two mostly discussed techniques of postoperative analgesia for total knee joint arthroplasty. Surgeries were performed under subarachnoid anaesthesia with intravenous sedation. 9 patients of first group in received prolonged femoral nerve blockade as a component of multimodal analgesia. 8 patients of second group received epidural infusion of naropine. If basic technique of analgesia was not effective patients received trimeperidine 20 mg intramuscular. Patients of second group had less pain syndrome (in order to visual analogue scale) and did not need additional administration of opioids.
