Abstract

Lower limb long bone fractures are vulnerable for venous thromboembolism leading to pulmonary thromboembolism. Here, we present a case of preexisting pulmonary thromboembolism with pulmonary artery hypertension posted for bipolar hemiarthroplasty.In hemodynamically stable patients it is better to operate the underlying fracture early to avoid recurrence and worsening of pulmonary thromboembolism. This case was successfully managed under general anesthesia.
