Abstract

We report a case of a 7 year old girl with anorectal malformation and uncorrected Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries posted for surgery. Based on the pathophysiology of the congenital cardiac lesion and low lying anorectal malformation, anoplasty was performed under general anesthesia with single shot epidural analgesia. We highlight the various pathophysiological mechanisms to be considered while tailoring anesthesia management for a complex rare uncorrected congenital cardiac lesion in a child.
