The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Marina Simaioforidou, Larissa University Hospital
  Purpose
Total Knee Replacement can be performed under the combination of posterior lumbar plexus block plus sciatic nerve block. The investigators can have the same outcome by performing instead of posterior lumbar plexus block more peripheral nerve blocks. More specifically under the combination of sciatic nerve block plus femoral nerve block plus obturator nerve block.

Condition Intervention
Total Knee Replacement Surgery Other: Sciatic, femoral, obturator nerve blocks Other: Sciatic nerve block, posterior lumbar plexus block

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Comparison of Posterior Lumbar Plexus Block Plus Sciatic Nerve Block With Sciatic Plus Femoral Plus Obturator Nerve Block for Total Knee Replacement (TKR)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Feasibility of TKR surgery under ultrasound guided sciatic nerve block plus femoral nerve block plus obturator nerve block measured with Pain Score on the Visual Analog Scale [ Time Frame: Completion of surgery ]
    If the patient complains for pain > 4 in VAS and there is no relief with fentanyl administration the anesthesia plan converts to general anesthesia with laryngeal mask


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Intraoperative opioid consumption for TKR surgery under ultrasound guided sciatic nerve block plus femoral nerve block plus obturator nerve block [ Time Frame: Intaoperatively ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Postoperative opioid consumption [ Time Frame: First 24 postoperative hours ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: December 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
