To analyze the therapeutic efficacy of local block with promethazine and routine surgery in the treatment of popliteal cyst and explore the clinical efficacy of arthroscopy-assisted modified popliteal cyst resection therapy, a total of 116 patients with popliteal cyst treated at the Fuzhou General Hospital of Nanjing Military Command were enrolled. These patients were divided into the control group, who underwent routine surgery and the research group, who were subjected to local block with promethazine, with 58 patients in each group. The therapeutic efficacy was observed and compared. The incision length and surgical time of the research group were significantly lower than that of the control group. By comparing the remission rates of clinical symptoms at 2 d, 1 mo, 2 mo and 1 y after surgery, the magnetic resonance imaging data, the recovery rate and recurrence rate, results showed that the research group had greater advantage over the control group (P<0.05). Local block with promethazine could produce ideal outcomes in the treatment of popliteal cyst than routine surgery.
