Figure 2: Placement of 22G RF cannula at superolateral, superomedial, and inferomedial genicular nerves followed by insertion of RF probes to confirm needle position at the target nerves by sensory stimulation (50 Hz at 0.3–0.5 V) and to avoid motor nerve ablation (stimulation with 2 Hz at 1 V). Continuous RF ablation of the three genicular nerves is then done at 70°C for 90 min, as shown in [Figure 3]
