A new technique for regional anaesthesia for arthroscopy of the knee is presented. The method includes sciatic nerve block according to the technique proposed by Labat, through a posterior approach and the block of the femoral and lateral cutaneous nerves using a single anterior approach. Results obtained in 30 patients are presented: they include good stability of the cardiovascular and respiratory parameters, high efficiency and duration of anaesthesia resulting in a satisfactory surgical procedure.
