The authors describe the clinical case of a pregnant woman in the 39th week of gestation who underwent an emergency cesarean section. The history revealed a previous operation 10 years earlier (discectomia L2-L3) under general anesthesia, and an umbilical hernia 2 years later under spinal anesthesia using hyperbaric lidocaine 5%, with subsequent symptoms of mild and transitory neuropathy. Subarachnoid anesthesia in the current surgery did not cause any neurological damage and the symptoms described after the previous subarachnoid anesthesia did not reappear.

Abstract

The authors describe the clinical case of a pregnant woman in the 39th week of gestation who underwent an emergency cesarean section. The history revealed a previous operation 10 years earlier (discectomia L2-L3) under general anesthesia, and an umbilical hernia 2 years later under spinal anesthesia using hyperbaric lidocaine 5%, with subsequent symptoms of mild and transitory neuropathy. Subarachnoid anesthesia in the current surgery did not cause any neurological damage and the symptoms described after the previous subarachnoid anesthesia did not reappear.
