We report a novel case of a patient who presented for elective total knee arthroplasty and had distorted adductor canal anatomy due to previous sartorius rotational flap surgery. Despite the lack of a sartorius muscle on the intended operative limb, we describe the successful placement of a continuous adductor canal block. This case is a clinically relevant example that highlights the importance of the vastoadductor membrane as the anatomical anteromedial boundary for the adductor canal, and that it remains intact even after sartorius muscle flap surgery.
