There is marked variation in use of neuraxial anesthesia for hip fracture surgery. In this issue of Anesthesiology, McIsaac et al. report a population-based cohort study using administrative data in Ontario, Canada, to examine the association of utilization of neuraxial anesthesia with 30-day survival, length of stay, and costs. In an accompanying Editorial View, Chen and Neuman discuss these new research findings and their relationship to how we identify high-quality anesthetic care. Illustration by Sara Jarret, C.M.I.
