Management of preoperative medications for acute and chronic illnesses and their potential interactions during the interoperative period with administered drugs and anesthesiologic and surgical maneuvers is often problematic. The situation is further complicated by the growing request for surgery by patients on multiple drug regimens for systemic conditions, the increase in injuries to the extremities sustained in road and domestic accidents, and the increasing number of elderly patients requiring surgical treatment for pain, to restore walking ability and improve their quality of life. Operators therefore need to know the pharmacokinetics of the most common preoperative medications and their potentially most harmful interactions with agents used in the interoperative period.
