Abstract

Correction of tetralogy of Fallot during infancy usually eliminates the risks associated with general anaesthesia. In rare cases of uncorrected defects persisting into adulthood, anaesthetic management during non-cardiac surgery may therefore be challenging. We describe the use of continuous spinal anaesthesia to successfully circumvent the operative risk of major abdominal surgery in an adult patient with uncorrected tetralogy of Fallot.
