Whilst local anaesthesia for daycase arthroscopic knee surgery has been well reported, there are few centres in the United Kingdom performing such a technique. Hyaluronidase has been widely used as an adjunct to local anaesthetic infiltration in the fields of ophthalmic and plastic surgery, but it is rarely used in orthopaedic surgery. We report our technique, which the senior author has successfully used in 121 patients having arthroscopic knee surgery over the past year, and discuss the role of added hyaluronidase to the local anaesthetic portal infiltrate.
