Severe pain after a hip fracture commonly delays hospital discharge and poses significant nursing problems in patients who are not surgical candidates. We present ultrasound-guided pericapsular hip alcohol neurolysis of the articular branches of the femoral and obturator nerves as a novel approach in the treatment of severe pain after hip fracture. This technique provided excellent pain relief in a 94-year-old patient with intertrochanteric hip fracture until her death 2 months later.
