Abstract

Intraoperative tourniquet-related pain is well recognized by anesthesiologists, but postoperative tourniquet-related pain has received little attention. We present a patient who underwent a total knee arthroplasty under general anesthesia and an adductor canal nerve block. She complained of intractable thigh pain postoperatively. Lidocaine 5% patches completely resolved her postoperative tourniquet-related pain.
