International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia , 04/13/2012
Jo YY et al. – Anesthesia was initiated with a volatile–based technique which, following delivery of the baby, was changed to target–controlled infusions of propofol and remifentanil. Postoperatively, dopamine was infused to maintain the blood pressure within the high–normal range to optimize spinal cord perfusion. Successful anesthetic and postoperative management is described together with a review of the literature.
