From an anatomical point of view, HVLIA should be particularly useful for THA because the articular and cutaneous sensory supply of the hip region is complex and may extend from T12 (subcostal nerve) to S1 (proximal sciatic branches including the nerve to quadratus femoris and superior gluteal nerve).
