The article describes the case of a 35-year-old pregnant woman, known to have a 10-year history of Takayasu arteritis (TA), who was scheduled for a cesarean delivery due to heart failure and dysrythmias. Epidural anesthesia has been performed to attenuate hemodynamic change. This technique is still controversial in pregnant patients with heart failure, but the case proved successful.
