Abstract

(Abstracted from J Clin Anesth, 35:190–194, 2016)

This case series was conducted to examine the feasibility of the use of ambulatory adductor canal catheter for patients being discharged on postoperative day (POD) 1 following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Incorporation of adductor canal blocks (ACBs) and enhanced recovery after orthopedic surgery pathways into patient care have led to reduced hospital length of stay in patients undergoing TKA, sometimes making patient discharge on POD1 possible.
