Summary

This study will consist of patients 12 years and older undergoing ACL reconstruction using a quadriceps or bone-patella tendon bone (BTB) graft. The patients will be randomized to adductor canal block alone, or adductor canal block + iPACK block. The primary goal will be to determine the differences in postoperative pain during the first 72 hours when comparing the two groups. Secondary outcomes will include opioid utilization during the first 72 hours postoperatively and range of motion including terminal knee extension at postoperative follow-up visits.
