Abstract


Eisenmengers syndrome includes pulmonary artery hypertension, reversed or bidirectional shunt associated with an atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus. Death can occur at any time during pregnancy as well in the puerperium. We present here a known case of Ventricular septal defect in Eisenmenger syndrome who presented in 29 weeks of gestation with orthopnea. Elective caesarean section was done with post-operative intensive care under general anesthesia uneventfully. The anesthetic management is discussed here.
