Myotonic dystrophy presents several problems to the anaesthetist. We describe what we believe to be the first report of target-controlled sedation combined with regional anaesthesia in a patient with myotonic dystrophy. Precise control of propofol levels and titration to patient satisfaction avoided the problem of delayed recovery which has been described with propofol anaesthesia.
