Lumbar plexus block via a femoral approach for total hip arthroplasty dislocation reduction: a report of 2 cases

The incidence of hip dislocation can vary based on factors including age and patient co-morbidities. Prosthetic hip dislocations present a particularly difficult challenge. Although many cases are treated in the emergency setting using procedural sedation for reduction, some may require general anesthesia. We report two cases in which lumbar plexus blockade was used as the primary means for successful hip prosthesis dislocation reduction
