Abstract

Twenty-seven patients requiring bilateral knee aspiration showed no overall preference for or against the use of subcutaneous lignocaine during knee aspiration. The trial result attained a predefined level of significance (β = 0.1; Θ = 0.72) with the fewest possible patients (27), using sequential analysis.
