cardiomyopathy, in heart failure and pulmonary edema. General anesthesia was
induced with etomidate and maintained with remifentanil infusion safely, without any
adverse outcome on mother or newborn. (Rawal Med J 2008;33:109-111).

Key words: Peripartum cardiomyopathy, cesarean section, etomidate, remifentanil, general anesthesia.
