Active Comparator: Lumbar Plexus Block
A lumbar plexus 'nerve block' is a procedure in which local anesthetic ("numbing medicine") is injected around a specific group of nerves to provide pain relief directly to the nerves supplying the area of the body undergoing surgery.
Procedure: Lumbar Plexus BLock
Peripheral nerve block
Active Comparator: Pericapsular Injection
The pericapsular injection is a procedure in which local anesthetic ("numbing medicine") is injected around the hip joint to provide direct pain relief to the area undergoing surgery.
Procedure: Pericapsular injection
Injection around the area undergoing surgery
- Pain score [ Time Frame: At the one hour point in the PACU ]Compare post-operative pain scores in the immediate post-operative period as defined by visual-analog pain scale at the time point of one hour spent in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU).
- Morphine equivalents [ Time Frame: At the two hour point in the PACU ]Compare the total morphine equivalents of opioids provided in the PACU within the first two hours of time spent in the PACU
- Time spent in PACU [ Time Frame: Immediately after surgery ]Compare the overall time spent in the PACU as defined by time to arrival to time to discharge vitals.
