Usefulness of ultrasonography guided femoral and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks in providing analgesia before giving spinal anaesthesia in patients undergoing surgery for intertrochanteric fracture of femur: A randomized clinical trial.


It is challenging to give the patient position for subarachnoid block (SAB) as intertrochanteric (IT) fracture of the femur produces intolerable pain. In this study, we have analyzed the usefulness of combined ultrasonography (USG)-guided femoral nerve block (FNB) and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve block (LFCNB) to reduce the fracture pain before performing SAB.
