High-volume infiltration analgesia may be effective in postoperative pain management following total hip arthroplasty. In this randomized, double-blind trial patients undergoing bilateral hip arthoplasty are randomized to receive high-volume local anesthetic infiltration in one hip and similar infiltration with saline (placebo) in the other hip.
