A 26-yo primigravida with Moyamoya disease presented to OB triage at 39 weeks for an elective C-section due to breech presentation. The patient had a history of transient ischemic attacks and was on heparin 10,000 units twice a day and baby aspirin weekly for the pregnancy. Her most recent Head CT w/o contrast was normal. The patient received a spinal anesthetic and had an uncomplicated cesarean delivery. In this presentation, we will discuss the anesthetic implications and management of Moyamoya disease in the parturient.
