Brief Summary:
Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is one of the major disorder of the pediatric population with an incidence of 3 to 5 per 1000 children. Open surgical reduction of congenital hip dislocation (CHD) is typically performed after an ineffective closed reduction or older than 18 months. Multiple femoral or pelvic osteotomies and tenotomies are performed during this surgical treatment and cause severe postoperative pain. The aim of this study was to evaluate the analgesic effect of ultrasound guided erector spinae plane block (ESP) in pediatric patients undergoing CHD surgery.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Sham Comparator: Saline + Placebo
Ultrasound guided 0.5 ml/kg saline injection to erector spinae plane
Drug: Saline Solution
0.5 ml/kg saline
Other Name: saline

Active Comparator: ultrasound guided erector spinae plane block
Ultrasound guided 0.5 ml/kg % 0.250 bupivacaine injection to erector spinae plane

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Face, Legs, Activity, Cry and Consolability Score (FLACC) [ Time Frame: Postoperative first 24hour ]
    FLACC scale will be used. The Face, Legs, Activity, Cry, Consolability scale or FLACC scale is a measurement used to assess pain for children between the ages of 2 months and 7 years or individuals that are unable to communicate their pain. The scale is scored in a range of 0-10 with 0 representing no pain. The scale has five criteria, which are each assigned a score of 0, 1 or 2.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Need for rescue analgesic [ Time Frame: 2 hour ]
    Number of patients who required rescue analgesia in postoperative care unit in the first 2 hour

  2. Need for analgesic [ Time Frame: 24 hour ]
    Number of patients who required analgesic in the first 24 hour
