With the arrival of an aging society and the progress of surgical procedures, total hip arthroplasty (THA) has been carried out more and more. However, postoperative pain severely affected the patient’s recovery, and there is currently no reliable analgesic method available. Evidence-based international expert consensus also recommends, compared to LIA, peripheral nerve block (PNB) as a central analgesic approach use in THA for improved outcomes . In this case report, we described 4 cases of postoperative analgesia with pericapsular nerve group (PENG) block combined with lateral femoral cutaneous nerve block (LFCNB) in patients undergoing THA.
