Neurovascular lesions in parturients: Anesthetic Mx for cesa
Cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) or aneurysm in pregnancy is a complex situation and there is no definite recommendation regarding mode of anesthesia for patient with this type of intracranial pathology.

Published in the Journal of Obstetric Anaesthesia and Critical Care, the authors present a case series on the anesthetic management in two pregnant patients with either cerebral AVM or aneurysm presenting for elective cesarean section.

This case series highlights the following:
(1) team working and collaboration with neurosurgeon and obstetrician to improve patient outcome;

(2) crucial role of anesthetic management in reducing perioperative complications;

(3) anesthetic management goals so as to minimize the risk of hemorrhage from an AVM or aneurysm.
