Purpose: Knee arthroscopy is one of the most frequent procedures in orthopedic surgery. It has a large range of indications. Post-operative pain is one complication and it is managed with analgesics sometimes with weak opioids. It has been proven that auriculotherapy is effi cient in decreasing post-operative pain for many orthopedic surgeries, in particular knee and hip arthroplasty. We studied the interest of auriculotherapy for post-operative pain after knee arthroscopy.
