|Experimental: Selective Tibial Nerve Block||
Procedure: Selective Tibial Nerve block
Use of selective pain block.
|Active Comparator: Control: Sciatic Nerve Block||
Procedure: Sciatic Nerve Block
Use of Sciatic Nerve Block
- To assess if selectively blocking only the tibial nerve component of the sciatic nerve will prevent foot drop. [ Time Frame: Upon emergence from general anesthesia and up to 48 hours in the recovery room. ]Measure frequency of foot drop in two groups and compare results.
- To assess if levels of pain and analgesic requirements are similar between the two groups. [ Time Frame: 24 hours after total knee replacement surgery. ]Administer pain scale and monitor use of analgesics to compare levels two groups.
