Regional Anesthesia for Ankle Arthroscopy

  • Thomas J. Guhl


This chapter has concentrated on the regional techniques needed to provide anesthesia for ankle arthroscopy. They can be used in an outpatient setting when the required equipment and personnel are present. Intravenous sedation used as an adjunct to regional anesthesia can provide optimal conditions for the patient, especially when administered by trained personnel. It provides the added benefit of patient safety. Obviously, general anesthesia is a viable alternative.
