Clinical Trial Summary

Effective postoperative pain management in elective hip surgery is crucial for the patients well-being, rapid mobilisation and potential reduction of length of stay. In addition to standard intravenous pain medication, anaesthetic blocks are reportedly effective. Recently, the PENG block, a pericapsular pain block without impairment of the motor function has been introduced in literature and performed at the investigator's hospital (HFR Fribourg, Switzerland) for total hip arthroplasty and surgical hip dislocation - the two most commonly performed elective hip surgeries. As high-quality evidence on the effectiveness of this novel block is lacking, the investigator's objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of (1) patient-reported pain reduction, (2) total consumption of postoperative morphine, and the length of stay at the hospital.


Clinical Trial Description

Forty patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty and 40 patients undergoing surgical hip dislocation will be enrolled in a prospective, double-blind, controlled trial performed at the investigator's hospital. This study will be the first prospective study evaluating the potential of this pain block in elective hip surgery potentially affecting both patients' postoperative well-being and optimizing costs of the hospital by reducing length of stay. ;
