Abstract

In the past, pregnancy was contraindicated in patients with spinal muscular atrophy. Recently, more cases are occurring because of improvement in survival and functional status. The goals for anesthetic management of these patients include satisfactory anesthesia during surgery and excellent postoperative analgesia with minimal compromise of respiratory function. Spinal anesthesia may be considered contraindicated due to spinal deformities, but successful spinal anesthesia was performed in a 37 year old parturient following magnetic resonance imaging of the spine.
