Intravascular fetal transfusion can be complicated by difficulty in maintaining vascular access because of fetal movements. Treatment by intramuscular pancuronium bromide has been proposed as a means of arresting fetal movements, although this treatment requires a separate puncture for injection. We report in this article our experience with intravenous fetal injection of pancuronium bromide to produce muscular paralysis during fetal transfusion.
