The patient was then positioned supine for the adductor canal block.
The recently updated (2018) ASRA guidelines recommend "management based on site compressibility, vascularity, and consequences of bleeding." [3] While an adductor canal block is considered to be superficial, we feel it is more appropriately categorized as a deep block in a morbidly obese patient because compressibility is more difficult if inadvertent vascular puncture were to occur.
The ultrasound probe was placed at the mid-thigh level, approximately halfway between the ASIS and the patella, to obtain a transverse cross-sectional view of the sartorius muscle and the adductor canal. Underneath the sartorius muscle, the superficial femoral artery was identified in short-axis.
Adductor canal block versus femoral nerve block and quadriceps strength: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study in healthy volunteers.
A re-evaluation of her condition included a check of her femoral and saphenous nerves which were painful on palpation along their path including the medial border of the tibia, pes anserine insertion, the medial joint line at the sartorius and gracilis (just adjacent to the adductor hiatus), the adductor canal, femoral triangle and lateral border of psoas.
(10,34,35,37) It is at this point as well as within the adductor canal where the saphenous nerve is most susceptible to entrapment.
To our knowledge no study reported cost and process outcomes or revision rates and no direct comparison of adductor canal block (with or without selective intraoperative infiltration of posterior knee tissues) versus full protocol HVLIA among patients undergoing TKA has been reported.

The main theoretical advantage of blocking the F NB at the level of the adductor canal compared with the more proximal block at the level of the inguinal ligament is sparing of the motor function of the anterior thigh muscles (4, 5).
