A 98-year-old male patient with history of hemiarthroplasty suffered periprosthetic fracture of right femoral shaft and developed acute coronary event in three days after hospitalization. Femoral nerve and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks combined with general anesthesia were implemented for the internal fixation surgery. The recovery was uneventful after discharge. In this case report, we discussed the main considerations of anesthesia specifically for this complicated case.
