Anesthesia for Fetal Surgery

Fetal surgery (surgery performed on a pregnant mother to help her baby before it is born) can occur either during the middle of pregnancy or at the end of the pregnancy. In all cases, anesthesiologists are involved to provide for the comfort and safety of pregnant mothers and their babies. Fetal surgery pushes the limits of knowledge and therapy beyond conventional paradigms by treating the developing fetus as a patient. Providing anesthesia for fetal surgery is challenging for many reasons. It requires integration of both obstetric and pediatric anesthesia practice.

Fetal surgery and anesthesia for fetal surgery are branches of obstetric anesthesia. This form of anesthesia is complicated because anesthetic care is being provided for two patients, mother and fetus simultaneously. The mother of the fetus is essentially being used as a life support system for the fetus, permitting a major fetal surgical intervention that would otherwise place the fetus at an increased risk for morbidity or mortality.
