    • Abstract:
      Anaesthetic management of a patient with adult congenital heart disease with a single ventricle physiology presenting for an emergency laparoscopic surgery is challenging. The importance of a multidisciplinary approach, astute understanding of the pathophysiology and optimisation of intraoperative hemodynamic goals cannot be overemphasised. The present report describes the anaesthetic challenges and the role of transoesophageal echocardiography in perioperative management of a patient with uncorrected tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, who successfully underwent an emergency laparoscopic hysterectomy under general anaesthesia.
