Pericapsular Nerve Group block (PENG) and total hip arthroplasty


Author(s): Rania Gamal Hegab, Tarek ABD Elhay Mostafa, Rehab Said El Kalla and Ahmed Mohamed Hamed

Abstract: A new method of regional anaesthetic called Pericapsular Nerve Group block (PENG) blocks these nerves in order to target the hip's anterior capsule. PENG Block applications include medial thigh lesions, hip fractures, and vascular operations. Only ultrasonic guidance is used when performing the PENG Block, and two methods—out-of-plane method and in-plane method—are used with the low-frequency probe. When employed in a multimodal manner, ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks were shown to be more effective and to have less adverse effects. Infection, bleeding, nerve injury, and local anaesthetic toxicity are some of the consequences. PENG is useful in complete hip replacement.
