Pain after hip replacement surgery may potentially hinder postoperative physiotherapy and early mobilization. Regional anesthesia of the lower limb appears to be effective for postoperative pain control in this setting and it has been shown that the lumbar plexus blockade provides high-quality analgesia, as the femoral nerve supplies the anterior hip joint capsule, as well as the proximal femur, the quadriceps, iliacus and pectineus muscles. Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
