Abstract
A six-hour-old female infant with a complete, thoracic ectopic heart underwent left antero-lateral thoracotomy, division of left superior vena cava, left lower lobectomy, and reduction of heart into the lobectomied space under endotracheal fluothane-oxygen anesthesia employing infant circle absorber. Despite all supporting measures available, her condition progressively deteriorated with increasing severity in bradycardia and cyanosis resulting in cardiac arrest three hours after the completion of surgery. Anesthetic management and cause of death have been discussed together with the case report.
