DEL CASTILLO, Ana Sofía; JIRON, Jaime; JARAMILLO, Eloy  and  SARDI, Norma. Utililización de anestesia general en cesáreas de mujeres con parálisis cerebral: descripción de dos casos. Rev. colomb. anestesiol. [online]. 2008, vol.36, n.1, pp.53-55. ISSN 0120-3347.

Two pregnant women with cerebral palsy were scheduled for cesarean section. Curvature of the spine and mental retardation make regional anestesia technically very difficult, so general anestesia was selected. Propofol were intravenouslsy administered for induction and isoflurane for maintenance. In both cases, healthy babies were delivered with good Apgar score and without maternal and neonatal complications.

Keywords : General anesthesia; cerebral palsy; propofol.
