PGE1 nebulisation during
caesarean section for Eisenmenger's syndrome: a case report
Eisenmenger's syndrome in
pregnancy can lead to death in 50% to 65% of parturients. Expensive invasive
monitoring and medication have improved management and outcomes. Cheaper
alternatives for the management of high-risk patients who present with no
prenatal care are still not available.
We describe the obstetric
anaesthesia management of a 34-year-old, 34-weeks pregnant woman who presented
with a recent diagnosis of severe Eisenmenger's syndrome. A combined spinal
epidural anaesthesia was used together with invasive cardiac monitoring as well
as PGE1 nebulisation after delivery of the baby. This helped achieve a
reduction of shunt, improvement of hypoxia and reduction of pulmonary
We found this to be a cheaper and
safe alternative in the management of such patients who present with no
adequate prior management.
