Abstract

Surgical repair of the hip is considered an extremely painful procedure. Managing pain in this surgery is challenging even with several available options, each with limitations. Erector spinae plane (ESP) block is a novel technique that has been used in different types of surgery, with promising results. Herein, we describe a case of a successful ESP block for pediatric hip surgery. In the future, ESP block could be an alternative technique for providing effective analgesia.
