The article discusses a case study of a 30-year-old woman who was diagnosed with myotonic dystrophy (MD) following cesarean section under general anesthesia. The details of the medical condition of the patient are presented. The researchers recommend regional anesthesia for cesarian section for patients who were diagnosed with MD preoperatively.
