A 24-year-old woman with a history of unrepaired tetralogy of Fallot was scheduled to undergo laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Her significant history included tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, hypoplastic left pulmonary artery, pulmonary vascular obstructive disease, a functioning right subclavian artery to right pulmonary artery shunt (modified Blalock-Taussig palliative procedure) with a similar shunt on the left side that is occluded. The patient underwent general endotracheal anesthesia for laparoscopic cholecystectomy for cholelithiasis and pancreatitis. Anesthetic induction, intraoperative course, and the postoperative period proceeded uneventfully, and the patient quickly progressed to the preoperative level of functioning. The careful application of pharmacological and physiological principles guided the anesthetic plan and produced a successful outcome. Principles for the anesthetic management of the patient with cyanotic congenital heart disease undergoing noncardiac surgery are reviewed.
