Abstract

This case report demonstrates the successful anesthetic management of cesarean section for a 29-year-old primiparous parturient with a past history of a scoliosis operation at 13 years of age. An Isola hook and screw-rod system had been implanted as posterior spinal instrumentation at the level of T3-L3. We titrated hyperbaric bupivacaine 7mg combined with fentanyl 15μg through a continuous spinal catheter, placed with a catheter-over-needle technique in order to avoid unintentional wide spread of anesthetic agents. The anesthetic level was T4 at the start of the operation. Her surgery was carried out without any problems. Headache, as a dural tap-related complication, was not observed. Spinal anesthesia with the titration of anesthetic agents for cesarean section is considered to be one of the choices for a parturient who has had spinal instrumentation.
