Currently the most use solution to volemic reposition in hip replacement arthroplasty is the crystalloid solution. This trial intends to compare two different volemic replacements: HES and Ringer's lactate. This research has been analyzing hemodynamic parameters and the coagulation status before and after the pre-expansion with the solutions above mentioned.
