: In hip surgery, regional anesthesia offers benefits in pain management and recovery. There are a wide range of regional analgesic options; none have shown to be superior. Lumbar plexus block, femoral nerve block, and fascia iliaca block are the most supported by published literature. Other techniques, such as selective obturator and/or lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks, represent alternatives. Newer approaches, such as quadratus lumborum block and local infiltration analgesia, require rigorous studies. To realize long-term outcome benefits, postoperative regional analgesia must be tailored to the individual patient and last longer.

Abstract

: In hip surgery, regional anesthesia offers benefits in pain management and recovery. There are a wide range of regional analgesic options; none have shown to be superior. Lumbar plexus block, femoral nerve block, and fascia iliaca block are the most supported by published literature. Other techniques, such as selective obturator and/or lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks, represent alternatives. Newer approaches, such as quadratus lumborum block and local infiltration analgesia, require rigorous studies. To realize long-term outcome benefits, postoperative regional analgesia must be tailored to the individual patient and last longer.
