Ultrasound-Guided Local Anesthetic Infiltration Between the Popliteal Artery and the Capsule of the Posterior Knee (IPACK) Block for Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials
Local Reg Anesth. 2021 May 12;14:85-98. doi: 10.2147/LRA.S303827. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTPosterior knee pain after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is common despite multimodal analgesia and regional anesthesia use. This review included randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing analgesic outcomes after inclusion of local anesthetic infiltration between the popliteal artery and capsule of the knee (iPACK) block versus pathways without iPACK. Electronic databases (MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Scopus) were searched from inception to 10/11/2020. Eligible studies evaluated iPACK use on primary outcomes: opioid ...

Quadratus Lumborum Blocks in Nephrectomy: A Narrative Review
The objective of this project was to outline the current available data from both clinical trials along with case series and reports regarding the methods and utility of quadratus lumborum blocks for analgesia in patients receiving nephrectomy. For this literature review, we searched Pubmed, Embase, and Web of Science from their inception until 5/31/2020. Our search terms were as follows: "(nephrectomy OR laparoscopic nephrectomy) AND (QL block OR Quadratus Lumborum block OR QL OR TQL OR Thoracolumbar fascia block)." We analyzed all relevant clinical trials for quality using the Jadad scale. Our search yielded a ...

Transmuscular Quadratus Lumborum Block versus Suprainguinal Fascia Iliaca Block for Hip Arthroplasty: A Randomized, Controlled Pilot Study
CONCLUSION: Both single-shot blocks, namely the suprainguinal FIB and transmuscular QLB, provide effective postoperative analgesia after hip arthroplasty. FIB showed slightly lower 24-h morphine consumption, while QLB showed better quadriceps motor power.CLINICAL TRIAL REGISTRATION: The study was registered at clinical trials registry system before enrollment of the first participant (NCT04005326; initial release date, 2 July 2019; https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04005326).PMID:33907462 | PMC:PMC8068517 | DOI:10.2147/LRA.S308964 (Source: Local and Regional Anesthesia)
