Adductor Canal Block plus IPACK Block vs Isolated Adductor Canal Block for Postoperative Analgesia in ACLR with Bone Patellar Tendon Bone Autograft

Brief description of study

The goal of this study is to compare two different types of nerve blocks for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. A nerve block is an injection of local anesthetic (numbing) medication into the area surrounding a nerve in order to decease sensation. This decrease in sensation results in less pain after surgery. The standard of care for ACL reconstruction at NYU is to receive only one kind of nerve block called an adductor canal block (ACB). This is an injection of numbing medication to the nerves of the adductor canal, an area of your leg located along the inner thigh. As part of this study, the researchers want to see if adding a second kind of nerve block provides additional pain management. This second kind of nerve block is called Interspace between the Popliteal Artery and Capsule of the Knee (IPACK) block. This involves an injection of local anesthetic (numbing medication) in the back of the knee, which can be a source of pain for patients after ACL reconstruction.
