  • A Prospective Analysis of Preoperative Fascia Iliaca Block for Hip Arthroscopy

    open to eligible people ages 18–99

    Patients undergoing arthroscopic hip surgery have been shown to have significant post-operative pain that may delay discharge, recovery, and early mobilisation. A pre-operative regional anesthesia technique, the fascia iliaca block may be an effective method for acute post-operative analgesia. This is a prospective, randomized controlled study of the preoperative fascia iliaca block for patients undergoing hip arthroscopy. The enrolled patients will be randomized to receive either a fascia iliaca block with the local anesthetic ropivacaine or to have a sham block. All patients will receive a general anesthetic for the hip arthroscopy.
