Postsurgical Pain Management Strategy and Technique for Hip Fracture Surgeries Using Liposomal BupivacaineThe articles in this supplement jointly address a fundamental aspect of care in patients undergoing surgery for hip fracture, postsurgical pain management. In order to minimize the risks for short- and long-term harms that are associated with opioid analgesics, pain management in hip fracture surgery has shifted toward multimodal approaches. Local anesthetics administered using periarticular regional anesthesia can enhance pain management in orthopedic procedures, and liposomal bupivacaine, a long-acting formulation of bupivacaine, may offer additional benefit. This supplement provides the authors’ recommendations for multimodal pain management and infiltration techniques using liposomal bupivacaine in extracapsular, intracapsular, and acetabular hip fracture surgery.
