Synopsis

Fifty-five patients with chronic knee pain due to osteoarthritis were randomized to receive genicular nerve blockade using classical targets (n=28) or revised targets (n=27). The primary outcome of interest was pain scores on a Numeric Rating Scale (NRS). Secondary outcomes of interest included the proportion of successful responders (i.e., at least 50% reduction in NRS pain score), knee function,...
