In this chapter the essential aspects of aortic stenosis are discussed. Specifically, the hemodynamic consequences of this disease as well as which drugs should be used or avoided are explored. The case discussed is of an older patient needing emergent open reduction internal fixation of a hip fracture. The chapter is divided into preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative sections with important subtopics related to the main topic in each section. Preoperative issues addressed include evaluation of the patient’s hypertension and cardiac status. Intraoperative topics include spinal versus epidural anesthesia, management of a difficult airway, and treatment of bone cement implantation syndrome and atrial fibrillation. Postoperative issues involve extubation and, in this case, managing hypertension.
