The authors of a recently published study1  comparing three local anesthetic methods of reducing post–knee arthroplasty pain recommended spinal anesthesia, but 23% of patients apparently still received general anesthesia. Would the authors be kind enough to share the postoperative pain score data for these two patient groups (i.e., spinal vs. general anesthesia)?
