The purpose of this prospective research study is to determine the best way to manage post-operative pain after a total hip arthroplasty. Currently, there is no standard of care for managing post-operative pain in these patients. The quadratus lumborum block (QLB) first described by Blanco in 2007, is a promising technique in this indication: recently, there is a growing evidence for the use of the QLB as an alternative technique for pain management after hip surgery.
A sample size of 100 patients (50 per group) was calculated based on 20% reduction in morphine consumption with 0.05% significance and a power of 0.8.
After ethical committee approval, eligible patients scheduled to have a fast-track total hip arthroplasty are screened during preoperative evaluation clinic. Informed written consent will be obtained from all patients during pre-anesthesia visit the day before surgery (J-1). Consenting patients will be randomized the day of surgery (J0) to undergo QLB with ropivacaine ("ropivacaine group") or normal saline ("saline group").
Before general anesthesia, all patients will have a needle-insertion posterior to the quadratus lumborum muscle avec injection of either ropivacaine in the "ropivacaine group" or normal saline in the "saline group".
After general anesthesia induction, dexamethasone and ketamine will be given to all patients.

An area occupying the most posterior aspect of the ABDOMINAL CAVITY. It is bounded laterally by the borders of the quadratus lumborum muscles and extends from the DIAPHRAGM to the brim of the true PELVIS, where it continues as the pelvic extraperitoneal space.
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
Pain during the period after surgery.
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.
