Fascia iliaca or femoral nerve blocks are used frequently for hip fracture patients due to the opioid-sparing effects. However, these techniques prove to be insufficient in many cases. A recent anatomical study on hip innervation, led to the identification of relevant landmarks to target the hip articular branches, namely the Pericapsular Nerve Group (PENG), which allowed a novel ultrasound-guided approach. The aim of this case report is to show an anesthetic technique not described previously, that included an ultra-sound guided PENG block with perineural catheter.
