[Anesthetic management of a pregnant woman scheduled for cesarean section under epidural anesthesia and simultaneous surgical removal of pituitary tumor under general anesthesia].
Masui. 2010 Jun; 59(6):753-6.M

Abstract

A 34-year-old woman who was 25 weeks pregnant showed neurological symptoms of bitemporal hemianopsia and vision loss on the left side. MRI study revealed a pituitary tumor requiring surgical removal. We planned cesarean section after 32 weeks of pregnancy and removal of pituitary tumor after the improvement of general conditions of the paturient following cersarean section. However, the above-mentioned neurological symptoms rapidly deteriorated. Therefore, we decided to perform the cesarean section at 30 weeks and 3 days of pregnancy and simultaneous surgical removal of the pituitary tumor. As soon as cesarean section was successfully performed with epidural anesthesia, the pituitary tumor was removed trans-sphenoidally under general anesthesia. Postoperative conditions of the mother and newborn were good and neurological symptoms of the mother improved markedly.
