Preoperative Analgesia in Post Hip Fracture Patients

Hip fractures can cause considerable pain when untreated or under treated that justifies preoperative control. Since surgery is very often delayed for more than 24 hours for a variety of reasons in these patients and fracture immobilization can also be a very difficult task without proper analgesia, providing satisfactory analgesia is a major challenge while patients await surgery. This pain can be alleviated by a simple fascia iliaca compartment block that can be performed at the bedside without the need of a nerve stimulator. FICB is a feasible, efficient pre-operative supplement to conventional pain-treatment for patients with hip fractures. Clonidine adjunct in appropriate dose in single shot fascia iliaca compartment block is a feasible and effective method of pre-emptive analgesia for patients with hip fractures with a minimal risk approach and acceptable safety profile.
