One of the most common fractures in the elderly population is a fracture of the neck of femur. Effective post-operative analgesia is a major challenge. Age-related co-morbidities restrict the choice of analgesics. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of transdermal buprenorphine [TDB] patch and conventional analgesics following hemiarthroplasty for intra-capsular fracture neck of femur.
