100 patients scheduled for arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction were randomized to receive regional anaesthesia pre-operatively through either an adductor canal block (ACB) or femoral nerve block (FNB). The purpose of this study was to determine if ACB demonstrated noninferior analgesic efficacy to FNB, and concurrent superior results to FNB with respect to post-block, preoperati...
