An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Experimental: Postoperative Acupuncture
Neuraxial anesthesia (spinal or combined spinal epidural (CSE) with up to 4cc mepivacaine 1.5%) and 2 blocks for postoperative pain (IPACK and adductor canal peripheral nerve blocks). Sedation will be provided. Tranexemic acid (TXA) will be dosed per surgeon request. A certified medical acupuncturist will perform ipsilateral Auricular Trauma Protocol (ATP) acupuncture at eight ear points (Hypothalamus, Amygdala, Hippocampus, Prefrontal Cortex, Point Zero, Shen Men, Insula, Vagus) with 30Hz electrostimulation at two of those points (Shen Men and Hypothalamus). Acupuncture needles will be left in place and stimulated for 60 min and then removed. If an epidural is placed, it may be redosed with lidocaine as needed (up to 100mg total) and will be removed prior to transfer to the recovery room. A periarticular injection (PAI) will be placed by the surgeon during the surgery (timing at the discretion of the surgeon)
