Abstract

Background and Objectives: Conventional management of post-operative pain using routine analgesics in orthopaedic surgeries results in undesirable side effects especially in elderly population. Hence this study was designed to assess the effectiveness of Fascia iliaca compartment block in postoperative analgesia using Ropivacaine.
Methods: We performed Fascia iliaca compartment block with 30 ml of 0.5% Ropivacaine in 20 patients postoperatively, who underwent lowerlimborthopaedic procedures under General anaesthesia.
Results: The Verbal pain score(VPS) considerably decreased 1 hr after   the block and the mean duration of analgesia was 4.85 ± 2.86 hrs.
Conclusion: Fascia iliaca compartment block is very useful method of postoperative analgesia in lower limb orthopaedic procedures.
