    Epidural or sacral block is reported in approximately 25% of patients. Significant hemorrhagic complications in anticoagulated patients have been reported. The deep and noncompressible nature of the psoas compartment must be considered when selecting an approach to lumbar plexus block; fascia iliaca or femoral techniques may be more appropriate in the therapeutically anticoagulated patient. Peripheral nerve damage is also a potential risk with this technique. A side effect of the paravertebral approach to the lumbar plexus is the development of a sympathetic block.
