A randomised, double-blind study was conducted to assess the influence of intra-articular and subcutaneous prilocaine with adrenaline on postoperative pain in day case arthroscopy of the knee. The time to first dose of oral analgesia postoperatively was significantly prolonged in those patients receiving prilocaine but no significant difference in analgesic effect was demonstrated at 4, 8, and 12 h after operation between the two groups.
