The main hypothesis of the study is that anaesthesia of the hip using infiltration with a
local anesthetic solution is preferable over traditional analgesia with oral opioid
medications in the acute stage of the management of patients with a fracture of the hip.
To study the hypothesis the investigators designed a prospective randomised study where
patients are assigned in two groups, the first receiving local hip anesthesia and the other
placebo treatment. Both groups are eligible to use of standard oral pain treatment.
Effect of analgesia as well as medical complications will be recorded.
