To describe early postoperative analgesic quality from a posterior lumbar plexus block in the psoas compartment, located by neurostimulation. We used a single paramedial puncture at L4, following Chayen’s approach, in patients undergoing uncemented hip arthroplasty under subarachnoid anesthesia with 0.5% bupivacaine.
