A major concern with the use of continuous peripheral nerve block is the difficulty encountered in placing the catheters close enough to the nerves to accomplish effective analgesia. The aim of this study was to investigate if a self-coiling catheter would remain close to the sciatic nerve once introduced through needles placed under ultrasound guidance and if contrast dye injected through the pigtail catheter made direct contact to the nerves.
