Introduction: Knee arthroscopies are being increasingly performed as day care procedures both under local anaesthesia and subarachnoid block. dp Aims and Objectives: A prospective study was designed to compare local anaesthesia and lumbar subarachnoid block for outpatient knee arthroscopies in terms of intraoperative haemodynamic changes and surgical condition, postoperative pain, side effects and discharge time. Material and Methods: After obtaining ethics committee approval and written informed consent 40 adults (ASA grade I and II) of 16-75 years undergoing outpatient knee arthroscopies were randomly divided into two groups. They were familiarised with the visual analogue scale during the preanaesthetic check up.
