Abstract
We report anesthetic management of a 34 years old, term pregnant woman, for
elective cesarean section, who had congenitally corrected transposition of the great
arteries (CCTGA), associated with severe pulmonary stenosis and severe tricuspid
regurgitation. We used etomidate, remifentanil and cisatracurium as Total Intravenous
Anesthesia with invasive hemodynamic monitoring. The postoperative course was
uneventful, and the patient was discharged from the hospital on the second
postoperative day. (Rawal Med J 2008;33:123-125).

Key words: TIVA, cesarean section, corrected transposition of the great arteries, etomidate, remifentanil
