Multimodal Pain Management Following Primary TKA
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||exparel, ropivacaine cocktail (pic), bupivacaine|
|Sponsor||University of Utah|
|Start date||September 2014|
|End date||September 2017|
|Trial size||375 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02369523, 74975|
The investigators plan to evaluate the length of time to discharge readiness between the groups (continuous femoral nerve blocks (cFNB) vs. liposomal bupivacaine (LB) vs. periarticular infusion cocktails (PIC) following primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA). In addition, the investigators will compare quadriceps strength recovery over time and exploratory variables between the groups.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
Time to Discharge Readiness
time frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an average of 3 days
Male or female participants at least 40 years old.
- ≥ 40 Years Old
- Scheduled for Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty
- Opiate Tolerant (≥60mg/day oral morphine/equivalent for ≥1 week)
- Neuromuscular deficit affecting the lower limbs
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Known allergy or intolerance to Bupivacaine or Ropivacaine
- Hepatic Disease
- Renal Disease/Patients needing Dialysis
- Planned unicompartmental knee replacement

- Patients who lack the capacity to consent or are unwilling to do so
- At the discretion of the PI, patients who may have difficulty complying with standard of care (SOC) followup may also be excluded
