Lumbar Plexus Nerve Blocks for Perioperative Pain Management in Cerebral Palsy Patients Undergoing Hip Reconstruction: More Effective Than General Anesthesia and Epidurals.



Hip reconstruction in patients with cerebral palsy (CP) is associated with. significant postoperative pain. However, adequate analgesia can be difficult to achieve. in this population due to spasticity, communication barriers, and postoperative. spasticity. Recently, multimodal pain management techniques such as epidurals and. regional nerve blocks have been described for postoperative pain control, but it is unclear if 1 technique is more beneficial. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes of different perioperative pain management techniques.
