Title: Genicular nerves blocks for knee osteoarthritis
Multiple therapeutic approaches were reported in order to manage pain in patients with Knee osteoarthritis (KO). These approaches vary from pharmacological like non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs and opioids, and non-pharmacological such as physiotherapy, dietary measures, and weight loss to interventional ones such as intra-articular injections of steroid or Plasma Rich Platet (PRP) and nerve blocks. Several studies reported positive results with the use of GNB on knee pain. We review the current literature on GNB in the management of knee pain in patients with KO.
