Psoas compartment block is an excellent method of pain control due to tumor invasion of the lumbar plexus or a pathologic fracture of the femur. Three patients with advanced cancer complained of pain in their legs, and this was effectively blocked using a bupivacaine and triamcinolone psoas compartment block. The psoas compartment block is a useful procedure and can be of particular use in patients who have not responded to opiates or find the side-effects of opiates intolerable.
Key Words: cancer; neuropathic pain; psoas compartment block
