Heterotopic heart transplants were introduced in 1974. The technique allows the patient's native heart to be preserved in situ, alongside the transplanted heterotopic donor heart (Newcomb et al., 2004). We present the case of a nulliparous woman who underwent heterotopic heart transplant in infancy, and subsequent explantation of the donor heart eleven years later, when her native heart function recovered. In adulthood the patient attended pre-pregnancy counselling and was awaiting cardiac magnetic resonance imaging when she presented pregnant at 6 weeks-of-gestation...

Flexible bronchoscopy, therapeutic bronchoscopy and other procedures requiring anesthesia are generally avoided in pregnancy and postponed until after delivery if possible. We report a case of a parturient with an abnormal chest radiograph and mild obstructive symptoms of unknown etiology. At bronchoscopy, a tumor associated with post-obstructive suppuration was found and excised using electrocautery snare and cryotherapy, for restoration of airway patency. Coordination between pulmonary, obstetric, anesthesia, neonatology and thoracic surgery services was essential in ensuring success and the safety of the mother and fetus...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this international survey was to describe the current practices and techniques of labor analgesia in the Czech Republic (CZE) and Slovakia (SVK). METHODS: All Czech and Slovak departments that provide obstetric anesthesia were invited to participate in a one-month (November 2015) prospective study that monitored in detail all peripartum anesthetic procedures delivered by anesthesiologists. Participating centers recorded all data on-line in the CLADE-IS database (Masaryk University, CZE)...

U Ituk, K Thenuwara
BACKGROUND: A single perioperative dose of dexamethasone has been shown to improve postoperative analgesia and reduce opioid consumption. However, this analgesic and opioid sparing effect has not been well assessed as part of a multimodal analgesic regimen in women post-cesarean delivery. METHODS: Healthy women having cesarean delivery under spinal anesthesia were randomly assigned to receive intravenous dexamethasone 8 mg or placebo after delivery and clamping of the umbilical cord...

D J Chambers, K Bhatia
Horner's syndrome is a rarely reported complication of neuraxial blockade. In obstetric practice, the neurological signs of Horner's syndrome may cause anxiety amongst patients and healthcare staff, but more importantly may herald the onset of maternal hypotension. Medline, CINAHL, and EMBASE databases were searched to identify cases of Horner's syndrome following obstetric neuraxial blockade. Anaesthetic technique, clinical features, anaesthetic management of the Horner's syndrome and time to resolution were assessed...

H Dawe, R Wendler, E Evans, S Hammond
Brugada syndrome is a rare electrophysiological cardiac disease which can result in serious arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. Peripartum management is centred around avoiding arrhythmogenic drugs, including high doses of sodium channel blocking drugs such as bupivacaine. Myoadenylate deaminase deficiency, also known as adenosine monophosphate deaminase deficiency, is the commonest cause of myopathy in Caucasians. There is evidence that myoadenylate deaminase deficiency can predispose patients to developing malignant hyperthermia when exposed to specific anaesthetic agents...

Mediastinal mass in pregnancy is a rare condition that presents significant anaesthetic challenges. We present a woman with relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma during pregnancy who declined to have chemotherapy because of concerns for her unborn child. She failed to attend follow-up clinic appointments and presented at 33 weeks' gestation with tracheal deviation and narrowing down to the level of the carina, as a result of large neck and mediastinal masses. She required delivery of the baby to allow her to receive urgent chemotherapy...

M Werntz, R Burwick, B Togioka
BACKGROUND: Use of intraperitoneal local anesthetic to treat intraoperative pain during cesarean delivery has not been described previously. The aim of this study was to determine if intraperitoneal chloroprocaine may be useful as an adjunct to neuraxial block in reducing the proportion of patients with severe intraoperative pain that requires conversion to general anesthesia. Intraperitoneal chloroprocaine was administered during cesarean delivery as a potential alternative, when the anesthesiologist considered performing a general anesthetic due to severe intraoperative pain...

Congenital muscular dystrophies are characterised by progressive skeletal muscle weakness from birth or early infancy. Maternal respiratory compromise, joint contractures and presence of spinal instrumentation or fusion are some of the anaesthetic challenges that may be encountered in the obstetric setting. The choice of anaesthetic technique for surgical delivery needs to be considered on an individual basis. Multidisciplinary involvement is paramount to optimise peripartum care and outcomes. In this case report, we present the use of dexmedetomidine, humidified high-flow nasal oxygen, rocuronium and sugammadex in the anaesthetic management of a wheelchair-bound, non-invasive bilevel positive airway pressure ventilation-dependent parturient with congenital muscular dystrophy, who was presenting for caesarean section...

BACKGROUND: China has one of the highest rates of caesarean delivery in the world. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and risk factors for chronic pain after caesarean delivery in a Chinese cohort. METHODS: Patients undergoing elective caesarean delivery with a Pfannenstiel incision under spinal anaesthesia were recruited prospectively at a Chinese tertiary women's hospital. The State Trait Anxiety Inventory was measured before surgery. Postoperative analgesia was provided by intravenous patient-controlled analgesia for 48 hours...

BACKGROUND: Parturients with abnormally adherent placentas present anesthetic challenges that include risk-stratification, management planning and resource utilization. The labor and delivery unit may be remote from the main operating room services. METHODS: Division chiefs of North American obstetric anesthesiology services were surveyed about their practices and management of parturients with an abnormally adherent placenta. RESULTS: Eighty-four of 122 chiefs, representing 103 hospital sites, responded to the survey (response rate 69%)...

S Hakak, C L McCaul, L Crowley
BACKGROUND: Current fasting guidelines suggest six hours are adequate to minimise the aspiration risk after a light meal consumed by pregnant women undergoing elective caesarean section. We assessed gastric contents in non-labouring pregnant women, using ultrasonographic analysis. METHODS: In a prospective study, pregnant women ≥36 weeks' gestation, without conditions likely to influence gastric emptying, underwent ultrasonographic analysis of their gastric antrum, after six hours of fasting following a standardised light meal...
