Anesthetic Management of Hysterosalpingo-oophorectomy in a Case with Severe Idiopathic Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Cengiz Kaya, Ersin Koksal, Yasemin Burcu Ustun, Yasemin Semizoglu, Nurullah Yżlmaz.

Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy is a primary myocardial disease with unknown aetiology. This disease follows a prospective course that is characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired myocardial dilation. Congestive heart failure and malignant arrhythmias are the most widespread complications. The incidence of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in the general population is 5-8/100.000. Because of the increased risks of perioperative complications, anesthetic management of this disease requires the application of a specific technique. This case report demonstrates the application of successful regional anesthetic management (thoracic epidural anesthesia) in a patient who had been diagnosed with severe idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.

Key words: idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, anesthetic management.
