ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT02071433
First received: February 24, 2014
Last updated: January 25, 2017
Last verified: January 2017
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine whether blockade of the saphenous nerve can provide the same degree of analgesia postoperatively for ACLS as a femoral nerve block without resulting motor blockade enhancing shortening of hospital stay en functional outcome.
