LABRADA COMAS, Yeilan Rocío et al. Anesthesia for Pregnant Patient with Pregnancy Associated Cardiomyopathy. ccm [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.1, pp.213-222. ISSN 1560-4381.

Pregnancy associated with cardiomyopathy or peripartum is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy. It ischaracterized by a heart failure in the last period of pregnancy or in the first six months postpartum. The clinical presentation is similar to a heart failure of any cause. Anesthetic management is very important in hemodynamic maintenance; this is accomplished by preventing myocardial depression produced by drugs. The anesthetic management in a patient with early presentation of peripartum cardiomyopathy was reported in this article. Patient was admitted to the anesthetic department at 32 weeks of gestation for emergency cesarean section requiring general anesthesia.  Orotracheal General anesthetic technique was selected, he was premedicated with fentanyl midazolam + 1 µm/kg, Thiopental induction with 1% to 4 mg/kg and maintained with oxygen, nitrous oxide, fentanyl and vecuronium. At the end of the procedure, the neuromuscular blockade was reversed and the patient was extubated without complications.

Palabras clave : peripartum miocardiopathy; high- risk pregnancy; anesthesia.
