Abstract

Anaesthetic management of Caesarean section in a parturient with severe pulmonary stenosis and aortic regurgitation is described. The valvular sequelae resulted from previous unsuccessful surgical correction (Ross procedure) of congenital aortic stenosis. This case demonstrates the importance of multi-disciplinary assessment and careful anaesthetic planning, to avoid deterioration in perioperative cardiac performance in parturients with complex valvular disease.
