Hip arthroscopy is an increasingly rapid field in the treatment of multiple hip conditions, owing
to its important diagnostic and therapeutic benefit. As these patients lack a consistent pain relief
plan, effective post-operative pain control appears to be a concern. Several methods were used to
identify a method that decreases post-operative pain, narcotic intake and hospital and treatment
system costs. This article aims to study and report the relevant findings of the previous paper "Postoperative
pain management strategies in hip arthroscopy." Latest research encourages the use of a
multimodal approach to the treatment of postoperative pain in hip arthroscopic patients. In tandem
with peripheral nerve blocks or intraoperative anesthetic injection a pre- and after-operative
analgesic regimen is used, patients experience lower discomfort and post-operative narcotic use.
Different methods are similar in post-operative pain and opioid use. However, of those undergoing
Intraarticular (IA) or Local Anesthetic Infiltration (LAI), postoperative risks relative to peripheral
nervous blocks are smaller. Latest trials have demonstrated that the best and most reliable, multimodal
treatment for the reduction of postoperative pain in these patients may be intraoperative
techniques such as IA injection or LAI in combination with a pre and postoperative analgesy.
Furthermore, failure to use the peripheral nerve block can result in lower anesthesia procedural fees
and operating room turnover, thereby lowering patients' costs and increasing facility effectiveness.
