The effect of local anesthetic infiltration between the popliteal artery and capsule of knee (IPACK) on pain after total knee arthroplasty: a prospective randomized trial

Introduction

•Regional anesthesia is commonly utilized to minimize postoperative pain, improve function, and allow earlier rehabilitation following Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA).
•The adductor canal block (ACB) provides effective analgesia of the anterior knee. However, patients will often experience posterior pain not covered by the ACB requiring supplemental opioid medications.
•A technique involving infiltration of local anesthetic between the popliteal artery and capsule of knee (IPACK) targets the terminal branches of the sciatic nerve, providing an alternative for controlling posterior knee pain following TKA (2).
