Abstract

Spinal anesthesia (SA) in the lateral decubitus position is often used to perform total hip arthroplasty (THA). Hypobaric local anesthetic ensures enhanced and prolonged sensory and motor block in the involved side. The aim of this study was to compare the intraoperative anesthetic efficacy of hypobaric with isobaric levobupivacaine solutions for THA.
