We describe the clinical course of two subsequent caesarean sections in the same parturient with congenitally corrected transposition of great arteries (CCTGA) complicated with complete heart block. CCTGA represents <1% of all forms of congenital heart diseases. In such patients, the hemodynamic effects of pregnancy and surgery may trigger systemic ventricular failure. In these parturients, ventricular dysfunction will also progress rapidly with subsequent pregnancies. The literature review showed no evidence describing the anesthetic management of these high-risk parturients. We used combined spinal epidural anesthesia uneventfully for both the caesarean sections in this patient. This case report will discuss the details of this rare congenital heart disease and the anesthetic management.
