Popliteal block with transfibular approach in ankle arthrodesis: a case series
from 7th Space Interactive
Ankle arthrodesis is primarily done for control of severe pain in the ankle joint. Immediate post-operative pain is usually treated using oral analgesics, intravenous opiates and regional anaesthesia. Outcomes following ankle fusion including patient satisfaction studies are well documented in the literatures. However the advantage of popliteal block in the management of early post-operative pain after ankle fusion for osteoarthritis has not been widely reported.
