Ein Verlust der Stimulationsantwort ist beim weiteren Vorschieben der Nadel möglich. Ursächlich ist häufig das Vorbeistechen am Nerv. Die Nadel wird nun bis zum erneuten Auftreten und folgender Abschwächung der Stimulationsantwort zurückgezogen und die Stichrichtung wird korrigiert. Dies mag zunächst banal klingen, ist jedoch für die systematische Suche nach den Nervenstrukturen von immenser Bedeutung. Insbesondere nach längeren Punktionsversuchen kann die Stimulation erschwert sein. Ursache ⊡ Abb.

Zur Knie-OP, müssen dementsprechend die einzelnen Mengen angepasst werden, um in der Gesamtmenge nicht die Toxizitätsgrenze zu überschreiten.
