|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Knee Arthritis||Drug: prilocaine Drug: mepivacaine Procedure: Sciatic-femoral Nerve Block Procedure: Spinal anesthesia Device: Sonoplex, Pajunk||Phase 4|
Two groups: the first receive a spinal anesthesia injecting 2% hyperbaric prilocaine 40 mg with the patients in lateral decubitus and the surgical limb declive, the second a combined ultrasound-guided sciatic-femoral nerve block injecting 25 ml of 2% mepivacaine solution.
Onset time, performance time, duration of the block, time of voiding, as well as the time of home discharge will be evaluated.
