Abstract

Pregnancy can be rarely complicated with cerebral angioma. Such patients can pose a problem to the anesthesiologist and can present for caesarean section (CS). The main anesthetic challenge is prevention of rupture of angioma and subsequent bleed due to intraoperative surge of blood pressure. Both general anesthesia and regional anesthesia have been used in such patients. Spinal anesthesia has the advantage of safety, less hypertensive surge, and better analgesia as well as less blood loss. We hereby present successful anesthetic management of such a case presented for emergency CS done under spinal anesthesia.
