Patients with severe mitral stenosis possess anaesthetic challenge due to fixed cardiac output with additional risk of atrial fibrillation. Both central neuroaxial blockade and general anaesthesia have a potential risk for this case. We report a patient who underwent below knee amputation under ultrasound guided combined femoral and sciatic nerve block successfully.

Abstract


Patients with severe mitral stenosis possess anaesthetic challenge due to fixed cardiac output with additional risk of atrial fibrillation. Both central neuroaxial blockade and general anaesthesia have a potential risk for this case. We report a patient who underwent below knee amputation under ultrasound guided combined femoral and sciatic nerve block successfully.
