Reported is a case series of high risk geriatric patients with multiple co-morbidities presenting for lower limb orthopaedic surgeries. Combined psoas compartment and sciatic nerve block proved useful as an alternative anaesthetic technique to central neuraxial blockade and general anaesthesia. We recommend the use of these peripheral nerve blocks as the sole anaesthetic option for lower limb surgeries in the emerging phase of easy accessibility of peripheral nerve stimulator and ultrasound in the operation theatres.
