Abstract

Low back pain is common during pregnancy and has been reported in as many as 56% of pregnant women.However, the incidence of symptomatic lumbar disc displacement in pregnancy is exceedingly rare, and anesthetic management is particularly important in such cases because the attending anesthesiologist and surgeon must consider the effects of the anesthesia, the patient's position, and surgery on the fetus.We administered an epidural anesthesia for percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy at 35 weeks of gestation with the patient in the prone position.The patient maintained an uneventful pregnancy and delivered a healthy baby at 38 weeks of gestation
