Abstract

Postoperative pain control after total knee arthroplasty may be insufficient, resulting in insomnia, antalgic ambulation, and difficulty with rehabilitation. Current strategies, including the use of femoral nerve catheters, may control pain but have been associated with falls, motor blockade, and quadriceps inhibition. Periarticular infiltration using the appropriate technique and knowledge of intraarticular knee anatomy may increase pain control and maximize rehabilitation.
