The saphenous nerve (SaN) innervates the region from the upper medial thigh to the medial aspect of the foot and ankle. A femoral nerve block (FNB) is effective for blockade of the SaN but this causes quadriceps weekness and reduced patient mobility that is unsuitable in an ambulatory surgical setting.
