I have been finding much debate on the proper CPT code for a post op pain saphenous block.

I have been using 64447 to code these as my understanding is that the saphenous nerve is a branch of the femoral nerve.
Recently, I have been questioning this as it seems the opinion of other coders is that this should be coded as 64450.

What seems to be the correct code for this and what references are you using to base your opinion?

Thank you for your help on this.
