  Purpose

Background: Selective unilateral spinal anesthesia is the gold standard spinal anesthesia technique for knee arthroscopy. Selective sensory spinal anesthesia has recently been validated for this surgery. Both selective techniques are specially indicated for ambulatory surgery because of PACU fast track, low discharge home time and high patient satisfaction. This study compares both spinal techniques for knee arthroscopy surgery.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • time to discharge home [ Time Frame: every 30 minutes for an average of 3 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    In Day Surgery Unit, patients will be assessed for home discharge every 30 minutes and will be followed an expected average of three hours.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Ambulation time after surgery [ Time Frame: every 30 minutes for an average of 3 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    In PACU and in Day Surgery Unit, patients will be assessed for unassisted ambulation every 30 minutes and will be followed an expected average of three hours.
