Abstract: INTRODUCTION: The number of total hip replacements (THR) performed each year is projected to increase from 1.8 million in 2015 to 2.8 million in 20501. Local infiltration analgesia (LIA) is commonly used in anterior THR because it is simple to perform with few side-effects, however evidence of its efficacy is not convincing. We hypothesised that LIA with 0.2% ropivacaine when compared with injection of 0.9% saline placebo would improve patient quality of recovery on postoperative day (POD) 1, measured by the Quality of Recovery-15 (QoR-15) score.
