Congenital heart disease is presenting 7-10 of every 1000 live birth, the share of coarctation of aorta is 2-10% with M:F ratio 2:1. Pregnancy with COA is a special situation to be managed by anaesthesiologist. In patient with COA, cardiovascular decompensations / complications can occur. Maternal mortality is almost 3-8%. Adverse neonatal effects are also known to occur. We report a successful epidural anaesthesia for elective LSCS in a patient of COA.
