Injury to the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve (IBSN) is a relatively common complication after knee surgery, which can interfere with patient satisfaction and functional outcome.

The purpose of this study was to report the results of surgical treatment in a series of patients with IBSN painful neuroma.
