Abstract

Hip fracture is one of the most common traumatic fractures in geriatric patients. With the increase in the geriatric population, physicians are more concerned about anesthetic management of these patients and a lot of articles have been published in relation to geriatric hip fracture. Due to age related comorbidities and physical status, perioperative management of these patients are complex and related to mortality and morbidity. Anesthesia and pain control for these patients are directly related to the postoperative outcome. This article summarizes the most recent opinions about perioperative management of geriatric hip fracture patients at the point of preoperative evaluation, anesthetic managements, and pain control.
