Fascia iliaca compartment block (FICB) is increasingly being used for anaesthesia and analgesia of the hip, knee and thigh. It can be administered via two ultrasound-guided approaches, suprainguinal and infrainguinal. This study aimed to compare the analgesic efficacy of the suprainguinal approach of FICB with infrainguinal approach of FICB in patients undergoing above knee orthopaedic surgeries.
