Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah
J Arthroplasty 29:1154-7. 2014..While pain control may be good with the use of FNCs following primary TKA, improvements in fall prevention strategies or the use of alternative postoperative pain control modalities may need to be considered. ..
