Several alternative analgesic techniques have been recently suggested for hip pain (e.g., surgery, fractures, chronic pain). They all consist of an injection of a local anesthetic in proximity to the acetabulum, and in the plane between the iliopsoas muscle and the proximal insertion of the anterior hip capsule. The techniques vary in the transducer orientation, needle insertion and recommended volumes of local anesthetic. This new addition to NYSORA’s web-app is the approach used in our clinical practice for patients who qualify for fast-track after a primary total hip replacement (anterior approach).
